It’s CRCT Time! At Morgan County Middle School Testing Tips for Students Go to bed at a reasonable time. Eat a good breakfast. Have everything you need – including glasses if you wear them! Always read ALL ANSWER CHOICES – even if you think the first one is correct. The next answer choice may be even better! Check the answer sheet to make sure you are filling in the bubbles completely and that you are marking the right number. Follow all directions. Testing Tips for Students continued Don’t get frustrated by names in reading passages. For example – if you can’t read Mr. Bredenowski, just read Mr. B. in your mind. Pay close attention to the word NOT in questions. Look closely at graphs and their keys. Testing Tips for Students continued Concentrate and do not rush! Do not guess unless you HAVE to, but also do not dwell on one problem for too long. Be confident. You have worked hard and this is your chance to show what you know. You may not be sure of every answer, but use your best thinking. Remember that you can get a good score on the test without getting every answer correct! Testing Tips for Parents Make sure your child goes to bed early and gets up on time. Make sure the “morning routine” is as non-stressful as possible. Make sure your child has a good breakfast on test days. Our school will be providing free breakfast to any student who wants it on the days of testing. Testing Tips for Parents continued: Do not schedule any morning dentist or doctor appointments the week of the test. Make sure your child has anything they may need - such as glasses or medication. Testing Tips for Parents continued: Practice reading endurance – which means reading many long passages during one session. (Many of the children tire out midway through the test) Practice basic +, -, ÷ and x facts between now and test time. Build up your child by letting him know that you are proud of him and know he will do his best. Remember……. Relax – you are well prepared and will do just fine!!
