This is another meta-collection of resources for test preparation. The resource opens with Chapter 17 of the book: 30 Goals for Teachers. The chapter is followed by a slide presentation full of test prep ideas. There are more tips and resources at the end that contains many tech-based resources and apps. I use MANY of the apps suggested in my classroom on a daily basis, not just for test prep.
I love that this article shies away from the 'traditional' test taking tips and offers more critical thinking student prep. This article is another way for teachers to prepare students without actually teaching the test.
This article serves as a meta-collection of resources for test taking strategies. The first topic, Test Prep Throughout the Year, contains links to four short articles. Other topics include Calming Student Nerves, Test-Taking Skills and Vocabulary; Reading and Writing Strategies; and Content Review. There are even resources for students in grades K-2 to help students prepare!
A short, quick, blog post from a teacher who has experienced the world of high-stakes testing. The teacher gives suggestions, tips, and strategies to improve student test scores WITHOUT teaching the test.
A quick tip guide for de-stressing students prior to a high-stakes exam. I love this guide because it not only gives suggestions, but includes how-to videos and links to brain research (such as practicing the 4-2-8 method of deep breathing; and Yoga breathing techniques)
