All teachers want their children to do their best on standardized tests. Stress affects children in testing situations. There are a few principles that might help lower the stress and raise the scores.
Keep The Pressure Down -
Train them to relax by dong things they enjoy in the evening before the test. It is best to get the test off their minds.
Get Them Relaxed Just Before Test Time -
Engage In Physical Activity -
Avoid Rushing -
Relax At Intervals During The Test -
Practicing these stress reducing principles may well increase the scores of children on standardized tests. Some will benefit more than others. Children who are not doing well with schoolwork will benefit the most.
