altExamination questions are often developed with the so-called “average” student in mind. Some students, often those who fall outside that average range, may give a “wrong answer” when they focus on an exception to the general rule (an exception these students often can discover if one exists).

Following of examples of the examination style an individual might prefer based on his or her brain's innate energy advantage.

altPrioritizing Division

altEnvisioning Division

 

Individuals with an energy advantage in this division may prefer:

  • Oral presentations
  • Abstracting and summarizing
  • Essay questions
  • Reports involving investigative writing
  • Multiple choice questions

 

Individuals with an energy advantage in this division may prefer:

  • Essay questions (generally want to use a computer)
  • Submission of a project (e.g., art, writing)
  • Reports involving innovative or unusual topics
  • Composition questions (e.g., creative writing, music, poetry, novels, short stories)

 

altMaintaining Division

altHarmonizing Division

 

Individuals with an energy advantage in this division may prefer:

  • Matching questions
  • True or false questions
  • Precise memorization
  • Predictability in exam schedules to help reduce the stress

 

Individuals with an energy advantage in this division may prefer:

  • No examination at all
  • Practical questions (e.g., portray, demonstrate, role-model)
  • Conversation and collaboration around examinations to help reduce the stress

 

NOTE: When examinations contain questions and testing methods that represent styles preferred by all four divisions of the cerebrum, each exam-taker would theoretically be able to excel at one style and, at the same time, get to practice the other three.
