A Memo to Students who have been Disappointed with their Test Grades

Inspired by Richard Felder, Ph.D.

Dear student,

Many of you have told me that your test grades don’t reflect your understanding of the material and asked me what you should do to keep the same thing from happening on the next test. This is my response. Below you’ll find a set of questions about how you’ve been preparing for tests. I suggest that you print this memo and respond to the questions as honestly as you can, and then refer back to the memo and the questions several times before the next test. The question “How should I prepare for the test” becomes easy once you’ve filled out the checklist. The answer is “Do whatever it takes to be able to answer ‘Yes’ to most of the questions.”

Good luck,
Richard Felder
