Test-taking tips for students

MSA test tipsEven after plenty of preparation and practice, students – and their scores – can benefit from basic test-taking strategies and stress reduction techniques

State education assessment tests may change names and formats, but the possible stress and anxiety that can accompany high-stakes testing remains. For some students, regular tests and quizzes also may be stressful.

There are many ways a parent can help their child succeed on standardized tests, and many of these strategies are helpful for testing throughout the year.

Here are a few tips from the Maryland State Department of Education to help your student be well-prepared come testing day:

• Talk with your child’s teachers regularly about your child’s progress and what you can do to help him or her improve.

• Set high expectations for your child. Make it clear that school should be priority No. 1.

• Dedicate at least 15 minutes each day to talking with your child and reading with him or her.

• Provide a quiet place for your child to study.

• Help your child with homework.

• Show interest in what your child is doing in school.

• Limit the amount of television your child watches and discuss what he or she sees on TV.

• Monitor the time your child spends playing video games and is on the Internet.

• Encourage your child to eat a balanced breakfast.
