Advice
Testing will always be a part of education. It should only be used as a measurement of what your child has learned for that class. It should never be used as a judgment of their intellectual or social status. Often parents feel that they or their child is a failure because he or she fails a test. Test should only be used as a tool of improvement.
Never allow a test to become a wedge between you and your child.
If your child does poorly on tests, communicate with the teacher and solicit ways you can help.
Provide a comfortable, friendly place where your child can study the night before the test.
Prior to the test review with your child any study guides or review sheets.
Read and review the subject with your child (be a part of a solution).
If possible get a copy of the student actual test and discuss the incorrect answers.
If you find scoring errors discuss, in a non-confrontational atmosphere, your findings with the teacher .
Ask your child how they did on the test (show an actual interest in their endeavors).
If your child fails a test, don't yell or chastise, discuss what went wrong and make every effort to improving the grade on the next test.
Don't rely on any test to judge your child. They are all individuals with strengths and weakness. View them as a whole individual and love them unconditionally.
