SIM Virtual Professional Learning: The Test-Taking Strategy

Jan. 6 & 13, 2021 - times TBA

Note: This professional learning event is a series of sessions, which will meet twice to learn the instructional routine and provide time for interaction and feedback, and then meet three more times later in the school year for one-hour small group coaching sessions. 

Presenters: Rosanne Arvin, SIM PDL & Marc Markell, Ph.D, CT, SIM PDer


The Test-Taking Strategy is designed to be used while taking classroom tests. Students allocate time and priority to each section of the test, carefully read and focus on important elements in the test instructions, recall information using mnemonic devices, systematically and quickly progress through a test, make well-informed guesses, check their work, and take control of the testing situation.

Participants will receive the following materials as part of their registration: The Test-Taking guidebook, access to digital teacher resources, three (one-hour) small group coaching sessions and three (30-minute) consultation sessions for school administrators.

Registration Deadline, Dec. 13th, 2021

Early Bird Price: $350 ($375, after Dec. 1, 2021) - Please register by Dec. 8, 2021 to receive your guidebooks on time.
