Asking Questions During a Test
Is it ok to ask a question of the teacher during a test? Each teacher has a different approach to answering questions during the exam, but there are some general guidelines that might help.
- Ask a question when you have a genuine confusion about the test. Raise your hand. Don’t leave your seat.
- Be careful to frame your inquiry to focus on clarifying the question without asking for information that would help you answer the question.
- Ask your question quietly so that you don’t disturb other students.
Be careful to avoid being a student who is always asking for additional information. If your teacher is not receptive to questions, you might want to make a note with your answer that explains your interpretation of the question..
