Okay. This next question type says to match the words on left with their definitions on the right. Write the letter of correct definition on each line. So on the left I have items here. Number 1 is apple, number 2 orange, number 3 , number 4 broccoli. I simply have to match those with these . So let’s go to number 1, apple. Is that a green ? No. Is it a grain? No. Is it a citrus fruit? . It is a fruit. Is it a fruit with red, yellow, green skin? Yes. So my answer is D. I just have write D on the line. So there’s my answer D. Again, just have to be careful that I form the letter correctly that the teacher can read it. Number 2 says orange. I have to match that with one of the definitions on the . And the answer is C, a citrus fruit, so I would write that on the line. Some matching exercises ask you to a line, but this one doesn’t, so don’t draw a line. you draw a line, you’ll get it wrong. This one says the letter on the line.

Okay. Another test style is just short answer. This says, “Give short answers to each of the questions.” So a short answer means that you can write just or two words. You can write short phrases. You do not to write complete sentences. You do not have to write lengthy . It just means give a few answers, a few phrases, or few short sentences. So, the first one says, “What is a ?” I would just write a few words and phrases, maybe a of words with a subject and a verb. It starts with capital letter and ends with a period. Just something like that. do not have to write anything really lengthy.

The last question that I want to talk about is the essay question. This says, “Answer the following question completely.” Now your teacher will tell if this is an essay test and whether they want a answer, and this one is. The question here is “What Impressionism?” Well, there are many things that I could say about this. some things to keep in mind when answering an essay question to first of all, write clearly. Write so that the teacher read your writing. Also, write completely and write directly. Give your very directly and very clearly. If you kind of wander around answer and don’t get to the direct answer until the very of your essay, the teacher may mark it wrong. In this , I might decide to give a definition, to give characteristics of . I might decide to name a few important artists. There are ways I can answer it. But, again, I want to be , and I want to write clearly and completely. Even if you know the entire answer, you should at least give a little of information, and the teacher might give you partial credit.

So are some typical test styles and ways of answering tests. I you do very, very well on your upcoming test. Good luck. -bye.
