Test Taking Tips for Families

Preparing a student for a Testing Session

1. Ensure your child gets ample sleep the night before the test.

2. The student should eat a nutritious and filling breakfast. Avoid high-sugar cereal which can make the student hyper and/or unfocused.

3. Mark testing days on your calendar to help remind you and your child when the testing will take place and plan your preparations.

4. Set aside time each night prior to the test to review the concepts that will be covered.

5. Make sure the student is on time and avoid scheduling appointments on the day of testing.
