 The State Board of Education has extended the testing windows for ISTEP+ (March 3-21, 2014) and IREAD-3 (March 17-21).

 

What can parents do to help students prepare for ISTEP+?

  • Stay connected. Cramming for a test rarely results in the type of learning that will stay with your child throughout his or her life. The best preparation is to provide consistent support to your child throughout his or her education.
  • Know what’s expected. Read the Academic Standards so you know what your child should know and be able to do, reinforce these expectations at home, and stay connected to your child’s academic performance throughout the year.
  • Check grades. Your son or daughter may say things are "fine" at school but don’t stop checking report cards, progress reports, or, if available, your child’s online grades or class progress.
  • Talk to the teacher. Teachers know how hard children are working, how well they are behaving, the quality of their homework and what areas need improvement. Collect e-mail addresses or phone numbers of all your child’s teachers and check in periodically.
  • Don’t buckle on homework. If your child is not studying at home, ask why, and double-check with teachers. It’s tough to hold the line, but making sure your child does his or her homework is important for academic success.
  • Ask for help. Students who are struggling in a particular class may need extra help after school or with a tutor. Find out from your school where you can go for help and make sure your student gets the help he or she needs. Catching a problem area now can make a big difference.
  • Go to parent meetings. Most schools offer parent nights or teacher/parent sessions that provide great information. Check your school’s calendar at the beginning of the year and plan to attend.
  • Get involved. Nothing will have a bigger impact on your student’s success than your involvement in his or her education.
