Wisdom Tales Test by Kay Y.




Photo taken by me, one of the parts of the mind map of the wisdom tales with their morals.

Today we took an open note test on the wisdom tales unit. This was different than any other test that I have taken, partly because this is the first year that I have had an iPad issued to me. This was the first open note test that I have had this year, but it really stood out to me because all of my notes are on my iPad, but the test was paper and pencil. I have taken a few open note tests before, but none where my notes were on my iPad. I found it easier with the iPad, because most of my notes are in Evernote, I could quickly use the search feature to look up the wisdom tale. I was also able to use the pictures that I had of the board with all of the wisdom tales mind mapped by their morals in the last section! It made the whole test a lot easier!

I used my Evernote to prepare for the test, that was my main source, but I did use the pictures of the board mind map, and my MindMeister map of the types of stories. I spent most of my time on Evernote because most of my wisdom tale notes are in Evernote. This is because the note that I used to write down all of the titles, countries of origin, summaries, and morals is in Evernote, and that seemed to be most of our test. I used GoodReader some, to look at the stories and then look at what their morals were.

I liked this open note test a lot more than regular tests. I like this test because for me I had almost all of the answers in front of me. I kept my notes fairly organized, and knew where everything was so most of it was just finding the answer, and writing it down. I think I did a pretty good job on the test, and don’t see anything that I would do different. There was one tiny thing that I might of done differently, I noticed that a few of my titles were slightly different so I would have to look through my very big note instead of having my iPad search it for me. Over all I really liked this type of open note test!

  1. I only had one that I had to look for! But if I didn’t search like I did I think it would’ve taken a lot longer!
