NYS Math Exam - Tuesday, May 1 and Wednesday, May 2

Test-taking tips:

Families: If your Eagle Scholar seems especially nervous about tests:

Offer words of encouragement, and practice stress-relieving exercises together, such as deep breathing or shoulder shrugs.

Try to keep your talk about tests casual and non-confrontational.

Meet with teachers or a guidance counselor to discuss your Eagle Scholar's progress and activities to do at home to help prepare for tests.

Stay well-informed about your Eagle Scholar's tests.

Know how different test results are used, and how they will affect your child's placement in school. Teachers and guidance counselors are great information sources.

Let your child know that you will be proud of the test results as long as his/her best effort was put forth.

Before important tests, make sure your Eagle Scholar:

Gets a good night's sleep.

Eats a wholesome breakfast.

Dresses comfortably.

Arrives at school on time.

Has all necessary materials (e.g., pen, pencil, eraser, calculator).

Avoids stressful situations (such as arguments) prior to testing.
