 Testing Tips

Make sure you attend school regularly. Remember that tests reflect your overall achievement. The more often you are in a learning situation, the more likely you will do well on tests.

Stay encouraged. A student who is afraid of failing is more likely to make a mistake.

Eat a well-rounded diet. A healthy body leads to a healthy, active mind.

Complete your homework assignments. Homework supports classroom instruction and can help you increase the comprehension of the classroom work.

Ask the teacher(s) to suggest activities for you to do at home.
Activities can help you improve your understanding of schoolwork.

Ensure that you are well-rested on school days. Students who are tired are less likely to pay attention in class or to handle the demands of class work and tests.

Try not to be overly anxious about test scores. Too much emphasis on test scores can be upsetting to students.

Find out your test schedule in advance. Your school counselor can provide you with a schedule of testing for the year and explain the use of the tests.

Arrive at school on time.

Dress comfortably in accordance with school policy. Students should wear clothes which are comfortable and appropriate for the weather.

If you wear a hearing aid and/or glasses, be sure you remembers to wear them during all testing sessions.
