Remind your children to practice good time management skills when taking tests. Tell them to make sure that they answer every question but flag ones they want to come back to if time permits. Students need to monitor their time and stay focused on completing the test.
Reassure your child that he or she does not have to answer all the questions correctly to pass. It is not expected that students answer every question correctly. There is always room for error. Knowing that they do not have to be perfect will help eliminate some of the stress that comes with testing.
Don't spend too much time on a question that may be challenging you. Mark it or flag it, and come back when you finish the other questions. Sometimes a moment away can unlock something you didn't see before!
