Product Details

Designed to help you help students succeed on standardized tests, this test was culled from the Basic Skills Practice Tests provided twice a year to Scholastic News Edition 1 subscribers. By familiarizing children with the skills, language, and formats they will encounter on state and national tests, like the Terra Nova, ITBS, CTBS, and MAT, this practice test will boost confidence and help raise scores. Treat it as a confidence-building exercise. Explain that this practice will help students become more skilled and ultimately perform better when they have to take real tests later on. Do the sample questions together and go over the directions for each section, making sure that students understand them. After the test, review it together to reinforce specific skills. (this test is best given in the first half of the school year)
