Tips for Success on CAASPP State Testing

April 30  -May 11

 

· Research is very clear on the importance of healthy eating and rest to increase performance on standardized testing.   Be sure that your child gets 8-10 hours of sleep each night and eats a healthy breakfast each day of testing.  Breakfast foods should be low in sugar and high in protein to enhance performance.

· Please make sure that your students are on time each day and stay for the entire day. 

· Make sure that your students know who is picking them up each day.  We will not interrupt classes during testing to deliver messages.

· Avoid stressful situations prior to testing.

· Encourage your child to do his/her best.

· Think positive thoughts!

 

STRATEGIES FOR STUDENTS (Please discuss with your children)

· Be sure to read the entire question or problem before trying to answer. Be sure you understand the question, being careful to notice words like ‘not’ or ‘never’ or ‘all of the above’.

· Notice special headings, pictures, or map keys. These will give you answers or  clues to some questions.

· Understand that some sections of a test will take longer than others. 

· It is important to persevere through the testing process and do your best on all sections. 

· When completing the reading portion of the test, it is important to read the questions thoroughly and look back in the text for the answers. 

· Make sure to work out all math problems and do not guess at the answer.

A huge Thank You to Mr. Besinaiz and his Comcast team as well as to all the community members that came and volunteered their time.  Comcast provided all the supplies and materials for this day: 5 trees and butterfly garden were planted, US map painted; crosswalk painted, bark in the flowerbeds, wall balls painted, garden boxes filled with dirt, and backpack racks for all the classrooms!

 

Comcast also provided breakfast, lunch and a t-shirt for everyone!

 

Here are a few pictures.  Please feel free to send Mr. Witte picture that he can add to this post.
