Assessment

Testing tips for parents:

  1. Make sure your child gets a good night's rest the night before the tests and eats a good breakfast on test days.
  2. Encourage your child to do his or her best.
  3. Set high expectations.
  4. Remind your child of the importance of reading directions carefully and not rushing through the test.
  5. Know when tests are scheduled.
  6. Don't schedule appointments, trips or interruptions during testing.
  7. Remind your child about the importance of test scores and how they can affect the future. It is not only a reflection of the school, it is also a reflection of each individual's performance.
  8. Praise your child for his/her efforts.
  9. Send your child to school with a smile!
