Please click here to see a copy of the testing schedule by grade level.

Giving your students the opportunity to succeed
 
Preparing for Testing 
  • Note test dates on your home calendar; schedule appointments on non-testing days.
  • Encourage your child to take responsibility for homework and class study.
  • Help your child learn how to find information independently.
  • Praise your child for work done well.
  • Encourage your child to ask questions at home and in class.
  • Get to know your child’s teachers.
  • Confer with teachers on a regular basis for progress reports.
  • Gather available test preparation materials.
  • Assure your child knows that you value a good education.
 
Testing Day 
  • See that your child is rested and eats breakfast.
  • See that your child arrives at school on time and is relaxed.
  • Encourage your child to do the best work possible.
  • Do not send your child to school if illness is apparent.
  • Do not remove your child from school on test days for appointments.
 
Reducing Test Anxiety 
  • Discuss the test openly and in a positive way.
  • Have realistic expectations of your child’s performance while encouraging his/her best efforts.
  • Emphasize that the test is only one measure of academic performance.
  • Emphasize that test scores do not determine a person’s worth.
 
After Testing 
  • Examine all test reports sent home.
  • Determine areas of strengths and weaknesses.
  • Praise your child’s testing strengths and make a plan to address identified weaknesses.
  • See your child’s principal, counselor or teacher if additional information is required.

Eleven Tips to Help Your Child Prepare for Tests
 
To help children prepare adequately for tests (whether teacher-made or standardized), you can do several things to provide support and create a positive test-taking experience.
 
1.     The best way to prepare for tests is to study, know the work, and             take the right courses.
2.     If your child is nervous at test time, ask his/her teacher for tips on            helping him/her relax.
3.     Make sure that your child is in school during the testing sessions.            Do not plan any doctor or dental appointments on test dates.
4.     Make sure that you are aware of your child’s performance and that          you can help interpret the results when they become available.
5.     Remember to keep well-informed about your child’s tests. Know                how test results are used, and how they will affect your child’s            placement in school.
6.     If there are major differences between standardized test scores and        school grades, find out why.
7.     Encourage your child to study over a period of time rather than               “cram” the night before.
8.     Encourage your child to listen carefully to all test-taking directions         given by the teacher and to ask questions about any directions           that are unclear.
9.     See that your child gets his/her regular amount of sleep before the         tests and is well-rested.
10.   Make sure that your child eats his/her usual breakfast on the day of        the test. Hunger can detract from a good test performance.
11.    Encourage your child to do his/her best.
