Testing Strategies

Testing can become difficult for many students. Here are some tips to ease the nerves of your child.

1. Ask for help! If your child is struggling make sure they are asking for extra help, if they do not they may never fully understand the topic.

2. Don't start studying the night before the test! It will be easier for your child to retain information if they are not cramming the night before.

3. Study in quiet areas where your child can have full concentration.

4. Try studying with friends! This makes studying more fun and your child can get help from a friend who understands if they feel embarressed to ask the teacher. (Which they should not!)

5. Eliminate the answers you know are wrong.

6. Check your answers when you're finished! You might change your answer.

7. Above all, relax! Don't stress too much about tests, grades can always be made up elsewhere. (:
