Test-taking tips:

If your child(ren) seems especially nervous about tests:

  • Offer words of encouragement, and practice stress-relieving exercises together, such as deep breathing or shoulder shrugs.
  • Try to keep your talk about tests casual and non-confrontational.
  • Meet with teachers or a guidance counselor to discuss your child's progress and activities to do at home to help prepare for tests.
  • Stay well-informed about your child's tests. Many state testing dates are listed in the school calendar, and you can call a school principal or guidance office for more information.
  • Know how different test results are used, and how they will affect your child's placement in school. Teachers and guidance counselors are great information sources.
  • Let your child know that you will be proud of the test results as long as his/her best effort was put forth.

Before important tests, make sure your child:

  • Gets a good night's sleep.
  • Eats a wholesome breakfast.
  • Dresses comfortably.
  • Arrives at school on time.
  • Has all necessary materials (e.g., pen, pencil, eraser, calculator).
  • Avoids stressful situations (such as arguments) prior to testing.
