Standardized Testing Tips For Parents
The Night Before the Test
- Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before the test.
- Plan ahead to avoid problems before the test so he/she doesn't go to bed upset.
- Tell your child you know tests can be hard, but that taking them gives him/her a chance to show how well he/she can do.
- Be encouraging -- let your child know you think he/she will do well on the test.
Consider playing an educational game like Scrabble™ to help your child get into the testing spirit.
The Morning of the Test
- Have your child get up early enough to avoid hurrying.
- Make sure your child has a good breakfast on the morning of the test.
- Have your child dress in something comfortable and familiar.
- Be positive when you send your child to school.
- Make sure he/she goes to school on the day of the test (make-ups are difficult to arrange).
After the Test
- Reward your child for trying hard on the test.
- Talk with your child about what was learned from the test.
- Talk with your child about what can be done between now and the next time a test is given to improve their performance.
- When you receive your child's test results:
- Don't compare his/her performance to a sibling or a friend's child.
- Point out your child's strong areas and how proud you are.
- Talk about the areas of need and how the family can work together to improve those areas.
- Discuss with your child's counselor any questions you or your child have about the test or the results.
