ISTEP%2FIREAD+PREP
Preparing for Standardized Tests: Tips for Students and Their Grown Ups.

You will find many links on the right side of this page regarding tips for preparation for ISTEP for both adults and students. Click on any of the topics, listed in gold letters to the right, for more information.

** We strongly recommend that parents/guardians supervise students while on any youtube.com links, as unexpected content occasionally pops up on the right side of the screen. This site has some great information for test taking, but also some less than pleasant surprises on occasion.

Here are six basic tips: 

1. Make sure you are at school every day of ISTEP unless you are ill and make sure you are at school on time!

2. Breakfast is key! Eat a breakfast that includes protein. Proteins include: eggs, peanut butter, meat, cottage cheese, yogurt, nuts, milk, Avoid high sugar items for breakfast, which make blood sugar drop more quickly, which can lead to a feeling of fogginess.

3. Sleep! Get plenty of sleep the night before ISTEP and all school days. See the link on the right about how much sleep children really need for optimal productivity in school. 
 
4. If test stress is an issue, see the links of test anxiety on this page and review. You may also request an appointment to talk to Ms. Apple about test stress.

5. During the test- listen to the instruction and follow directions.

6. Make sure to answer all questions and do not leave any sections blank. If you skip questions you are unsure about, don't forget to go back and complete the questions. 
 
If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to talk to your principal, teacher, or call Ms. Apple at: 794-4855 ext. 226.
