Testing Tips

  • Take the time and follow the test directions. Student might gain valuable test points if they follow directions.
  • Relax and take a deep breath. Encourage your child to their best.
  • Arrive early for school on test days. There is nothing more stressful than arriving late for a test.
  • Set a reasonable bedtime and stick to it. Many parents underestimate the importance of a rested mind and body.
  • Provide a high-protein, healthy, low-sugar breakfast for your child or encourage them to participate in the school breakfast program.


Why is it important to do well on standardized testing?


Pros and cons of standardized testing have been debated for years.  Testing results provide parents and educators the ability to make informed decisions.  Many employment opportunities require testing for entrance, certifications and advancements.  The goal at West Prairie is to help students to do their best, be resilient and create a sense of community pride.  If you have questions about a test or testing window, please contact your child’s school.
