Sharpen those number 2 pencils

Silver Valley High School will be administering the California State Test April 22 through April 26. Make-up testing will be held April 29 and 30. In order to ensure your children do their best I would like to offer some suggestions.

Make sure they get a good night of sleep during the week of testing.

Make sure they eat a healthy breakfast and encourage them to do their best.

Review good test taking strategies: eliminate wrong answers to narrow your choices, read the question thoroughly, take your time, if you don’t know make an educated guess

Keep a positive attitude.

Incentives are being offered during testing to help motivate students. During each test, students will receive at least one raffle ticket for a drawing during Wild West Days. Students may receive extra tickets for working hard, taking their time, double checking their answers, etc. During Wild West Days (May 3), students will have an opportunity to win great prizes such as: iPods, digital cameras, sports equipment, etc.

Students who show improvement on the state test from last year can also get their grade raised in that subject area. For example, Student A scored at the Basic Level on last year’s California State Test in English. This year, student A scored at the Proficient Level. When students receive their test results, they should take them to the teacher in that subject area to show their improvement. The teacher will then increase the student’s grade by a full letter grade. Students must have taken a California State Test during the last school year to be eligible.
