Spring traditionally signals test-taking time in many parts of the United States. Research shows that being “test wise” improves a student’s scores. To help your child become more comfortable with test taking:
- Talk about the tests ahead of time with your child.
- Build your child’s confidence through study and practice at home.
- Show a positive attitude toward taking tests.
Tell you child:I know you will do the best you can, or
The world won’t end if you are not number one.
- Encourage your child to listen carefully to spoken test instructions. You can provide practice by giving simple, then gradually more complex, instructions for things to be done at home.
