  • 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.
