HELPFUL TEST TAKING NOTES

  • Make sure your children have eaten well on test days. Studies suggest that good nutrition is related to improved attention and concentration.
    Help your children by encouraging a good night's rest.
  • Ensure that your children make it to school on-time so that they do not miss any instructions and are allowed ample time to settle in and relax before the test begins.
  • Please do not schedule dental or doctor appointments on testing days.
  • Although it is important to let students know the tests should be taken seriously, it is also important not to increase their test-taking anxiety.
