Achievement Test Tips

Laurelville sixth grade students compiled a list of the top 10 Achievement Test Tips.

Here is the Real Top 10, Baby!

  1. Go to bed early, and get a good night’s sleep.

  2. Eat a good Breakfast.

  3. Come prepared (three sharpened pencils, erasers, highlighter, SSR book)

  4. 10 Questions every 30 minutes

  5. Read the questions before you read the passage, so you know what you are looking for.

  6. Skim the article

  7. Highlight the important information in the article and the questions.

  8. Reread questions and look for key words. DON’T GUESS if you don’t know the answer to a question. Take a deep breath, read the question again, and look back into the selection.

  9. Restate the question and number your answer

  10. When you are done, go back and double check your answers.

As a parent I also thank you for those tips. I will help to make sure Katie and Kari have ample enough rest the evening before and a good breakfast. These are things we normally do anyway.
I also will make sure they have all of the recommened supplies they need for the test.
But, most importantly I will encourage them to take their time, relax, and do their best.
I always encourage my girls to do their best!
Thanks again for the tips!!!!

I think that the achievement test might be a little bit hard because I am always worried that I will not do good or something is going to happen to where I will mess up. I will get worried on any test I take. My dad will always say to try my best in school so that I will pass and so far I think I am doing pretty good. I have never gotten held back my whole life and I hope that I never will to. I think that this school year is going by really fast it seemed like yesterday we just
STARTED
SCHOOL!!!!!!

To all 6th Graders of Mr McGuire's Class,

I think the list you created is great!
I can relate to how you feel about taking the BIG TEST!
You have probably already heard this several times but just relax and do the best that you can do!

Good Luck to each one of you!!
