Standardized Testing Tips For Parents

The Night Before the Test


  1. Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before the test.
  2. Plan ahead to avoid problems before the test so he/she doesn't go to bed upset.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
