HES students have been working hard to prepare for EOG testing this year. We are SO PROUD of their hard work and dedication to doing their very best! We have no doubt that they will be successful! Here are some tips to make the testing process less stressful:
-Get a good night sleep before the test. Your brain will function better if you are well rested.
-Take their time to carefully read all of the test directions. Many kids lose valuable test score points because they simply do not follow directions. Take the time and follow the test directions.
-Skip over questions you don't know. Kids should answer the questions they know first, and then tackle the harder ones later. Getting a few early questions right builds confidence, which lessens stress.
-Relax and take a deep breath.
-Arrive early for school. There is nothing more stressful than arriving late for a test. We recommend showing up at least 15 minutes earlier than usual to avoid worrying about being late.
-Eat breakfast in the morning! This will give you an extra boost of energy.
-Think positive thoughts! YOU CAN DO IT!
