After The Exam


When a test is returned, do a test error analysis. Analyze why the wrong answers are wrong (e.g. didn't know the information, misread the question, made a mathematical error). If possible, meet with the professor to get help with your test error analysis, being sure you:

  • Arrive prepared with questions.
  • Approach the meeting with a positive attitude.
  • Look for ways to improve for the next exam.


Ask yourself the following questions after each test:

  • In what ways was the exam similar to what I expected?
  • In what ways was the exam different from what I expected?
  • What part of my preparation helped me most?
  • What should I have done, but didn't?
  • What percentage of the test questions were drawn from:
  • What study skills should I work on to be better prepared for the next test?
    1. Class notes?
    2. Text?
    3. Both sources together?
    4. Other sources?


Decide which study habits worked well and which did not. Concentrate on improving weak areas of study skills. Consider making an appointment with a course tutor at the Learning Services.
