Testing Do’s and Don’t 

DO :

  • Make  sure your children have eaten well on test days.  Studies suggest that good nutrition is related to improved attention and concentration.
  • Help your children by encourageing a good night’s rest before exams.  Children who are tired will have difficulty focusing on their work.
  • Make the morning of test days pleasant.  Stress will impare you children’s ability to perform their best.
  • Remind your children to dress comfortably, perhaps in layers so that they are able to adjust to the temperature in the room.
  • Ensure that your children make it to school on time so that they do not miss any instructions and have ample time to settle in and relax before the test begins.

 

DON’T :

  • Schedule dental or doctor appointments on testing days.
  • Be too anxious about your children’s test scores.  Although it is importnt to let them know that the tests should be taken seriously, it is also important not to increase test taking anxiety.
  • Underestimate your influence on your children.  Taking an interest in what they are doing at school and helping them prepare for tests will certainly have a positive impact on them.
