Action Steps

  • Provide students with a mock exam or a set of questions closely mimicking the expected content they will encounter on test day.
  • Provide students with a list of the topics covered using the relevant course and exam description.
  • Ask individual students or groups of students to categorize the questions provided by the related topics.
  • Once students complete the exercise, provide them with the corresponding topics for each questions.
