Dear Parents,

ASPIRE Testing – April 9-16

Test Taking Tips for your Child

Tip #1: Make attendance a priority, especially on days that you know standardized testing will be administered or there is a test in the classroom.

Tip #2: Make a note of test days on the calendar

Tip #3: Avoid pressuring your child and provide him with encouragement.

Tip #4: Confirm that your child will be receiving any pre-determined accommodations during tests. These accommodations are detailed in his IEP or 504 plan.

Tip #5: Adequate rest and sleep. Set a reasonable bedtime and stick to it. Many parents underestimate the importance of a rested mind and body.

Tip #6: Make sure your child has enough time to wake up fully before he has to go to school.

Tip #7: Provide a high-protein, healthy, low-sugar breakfast for your child.

Tip #8: Talk to your child about how the test went, what he did well and what he would have done differently.

Tip #9: Go over the test with your child when you receive the scores.

Tip #10: Watch for signs of stress and anxiety!!!

Have a great weekend!
