EQAO Preparation

May 29, 30, 31

  • It is natural to feel anxiety before taking a test. But some children experience a level of nervousness that interferes with their performance. Even good students who are well prepared can be derailed by the general air of anxiety surrounding the tests.
  • Good test-taking strategies should be introduced in the primary grades. It is important NOT to make the testing process a stressful one. Helping your students develop a positive attitude and effective test-taking practices early on will follow them throughout their academic years.
  • What makes standardized tests stressful? A major factor is the actual method by which they are administered as this differs from day-to-day classroom life. They are timed, the instructions are complicated, and the rules are inflexible. Students who become accustomed to this type of environment over time will not find it so stressful, thus we need to “practice” this type of environment.

What practices are you using to help students to reduce their test taking anxiety?

How is this type of instruction linked to the explicit teaching of Learning Skills?
