Please take note of the 2016-17 testing calendar for your children.
Here are some tips to help your child take The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) and other tests on the calendar:
- Sample Tests. If students are feeling stressed, taking a sample test might ease their anxiety. The Texas Education Agency offers examples of the types of problems kids can expect to see. Visit http://tea.texas.gov/student.assessment/staar/ to review.
- Get plenty of sleep. Experts say kids need between 10 to 11 hours of rest per night. A tired child cannot stay focused for hours on end. Try for an earlier bedtime the night before.
