Testing Information

10 Ways to help your child with tests:

  1. Briefly review the subject matter together for upcoming tests.
  2. Make sure your child gets a good night’s rest before every test.
  3. Serve your child a healthy breakfast on the test day and send healthful snacks for before/after testing times.
  4. Have your child dress comfortably and arrive at school on time*.
  5. Send your child off to school with words of praise and support.
  6. Suggest that your child do deep breathing exercises to relax before the test begins.
  7. Tell your child to follow directions carefully, and ask questions if something is not clear.
  8. Advise your child to do the easiest parts of the test first, then the rest.
  9. Remind your child to check over answers before turning in the test.
  10. Encourage wanting to do well, but stress that one test won’t measure all your child can do.

*Students who arrive late on state mandated testing days (after testing begins) will not be able to enter the testing room. They will be sent to the library and will have to make up the test session at another time.


Remember: Children who love learning are more likely to do better on tests.  Instill a positive attitude about school.




4th & 5th graders! Keep up the good work!
