A Test is NOT a Passive Mechanism

Don’t fool yourself by thinking that taking a test is a passive mechanism for assessing how much you know. Current research shows that test-taking helps students learn, it works better than most other studying techniques. Recent research conducted by the Journal of Science stated that students who read a passage, then took a test on it asking them to recall what they had read, were able to retain about 50 percent more of the information (than students who did not give a test on the passage) a week later. When we use our memory to retrieve information, we change our access to that information. What we read, and recall becomes more fixed in our minds.

As students cope with the education system on one end and the need for being employable on the other, technology comes in handy to enable them to learn at their own pace. Test4Jobs enables students to revisit what they have learned, practice the way tests are conducted by employers, understand areas that require improvement, practice at their own pace, time their test-taking abilities, and learn where they stand viz a viz other students.

The online tests provided on the Test4Jobs platform are a good means for assessing what you have learned. With your own personalized Dashboard, your performance and progress are made clear.

Now, practice SMART and MASTER the pattern with – ‘Choice right toh future bright!’
