Smarter Balanced testing to begin March 31st!
Please see that your children are here it is vital!

Other testing tips:

  • ƒ Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep before a test, and make sure your child eats properly the day of a test. 
  • ƒ Make sure your child has taken any needed medication. 
  • ƒ Ensure that your child is present during testing (children generally perform better when taking tests in their groups rather than at a make-up time). 
  • ƒ Get your child to school on time the day of the test. 
  • ƒ Wish your child good luck each morning of the test. Tell your child that he/she is special and that you believe in him/her! 
  • ƒ Remind your child the test is important. Encourage him/her to do his/her best. 
  • ƒ If your child is too ill to attend, please call the school office. 
  • ƒ Remind your child to listen carefully to the instructions from the teacher and to read the directions and each question carefully. 
  • ƒ Encourage your child to stay focused on the test, even if other students finish early.
