Question Analysis Lessons
Focus on strategies that help students better understand the language and vocabulary of test questions. Recognizing academic vocabulary, rewording, categorizing, and understanding question types, such as one- and two-part multiple choice, evidence-based, or constructed response, helps students prepare for more rigorous, standards-based test questions.
Why Use Question Analysis Lessons
Students who use strategies that they have been taught to look for significant words, identify the purpose of a question, reword questions, and use other question-based strategies can analyze whether their answers make sense and are supported by text-based evidence.
How to Use Question Analysis Lessons
Each lesson targeting question analysis focuses on the vocabulary, comprehension, or structure of test questions.
Student resources in the form of passages, lists, or practice questions accompany each lesson to help you model, practice, and assess each question analysis strategy.
Follow step-by-step instructions and a sample dialog provided as I Do, We Do, You Do to gradually release responsibility for learning to students.
