Your child will do better in school if she can do well on them. Here are several test-taking pointers you can offer your child:
Take a few minutes at the beginning of a test to write down a few important words. This is especially helpful for students who “freeze up” and temporarily forget things they know.
Look over the whole test to see how long it is and check the types of questions.
Start working. Do the parts you know first. Make a check mark at questions you need to come back to.
Once you have answered every question you’re sure of, go back to your checked questions. Answer each to the best of your ability.
Double-check the test before you hand it in. Make sure you have answered everything that you can.
