Standardized Testing is:
C) Something students can succeed on
D) All of the above
Correct Answer - D!
It's that time of year again! Standardized testing is just around the corner, meaning the anxiety at most educational institutions is off-the-charts! Never before has there been so much pressure to perform well, as standardized testing determines school ratings, student funding, and a child's classroom placement. To offset test-taking anxiety, it is paramount we prepare our students with knowledge, skills, and guaranteed-to-succeed test-taking strategies.
As I prepare my own students in these weeks to come, I've created a PowerPoint entitled Standardized Test Tips and Tricks that includes strategies, tips, and a comprehensive test-taking term review. (Example: What is the difference between compare and contrast? Define and differentiate?) Using humor and positive reinforcement for maximum buy-in, Standardized Test Tips and Tricks will help psych students up and reach proficiency in no time!!
