Test Ready

Every test should begin with “This is not a race. You do not receive extra points for finishing first. Read everything carefully and double check your work.”

With each passing year, I can always count on at least three or four students that will finish the test, look at a friend, and say I’m first, I’m second, and so on! You REALLY would think there is a prize awarded.

To ensure they are really on top of the game, here are some strategies to get you on top!

1. Go to bed 30 minutes earlier than you normally do so that you will be rested for the test. You need 8 to 10 hours of sleep.

2. Eat breakfast before coming to school and if you do not have time, get breakfast at school.

3. Do some type of exercise the morning of the test to wake up your brain cells to get the oxygen flowing.

4. If permitted, bring a healthy snack and water to have at our snack time between testing periods.

5. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes while taking the test.

6. Relax and show your best work. You are ready for the test.

7. Use your time wisely now to prepare and during the test. If you finish early, go back to double check your work. Make certain you answer all the questions.

8. Read the test directions very carefully and watch for details.

You may find that more than one answer may be possible on multiple choice tests.

9. Maintain a positive attitude. Don't let more difficult questions raise your anxiety and steal your valuable time. Move on and find success with other questions. Avoid watching for patterns. Noticing that the last four answers are "c" is not a good reason to continue with that pattern.

10. Rely on your gut. The answer which comes to mind first is often correct.

Nervously reviewing questions and changing answers can do more harm than good.

Happy Testing!
