How can I help my child get ready for the test?
You are an important part of your child’s education. Some things you can do to help your child are:
- Discuss the test with your child. Make sure they are not scared or anxious.
- Tell your child that you and their teacher have high expectations and that you are both there to help them every step of the way.
- Take a training test with your child. Training tests can be found at http://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html.
- Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing.
