Workshop 6: ‘Let’s help students learn to test without stress’
Testing skills are critical for many to further their education; however, the stress is often debilitating causing the persons to not present their selves at their best. The workshop will present ways to help educators guide their professionally young followers. The intellectual material gained in this session will be appropriate for all content areas and for most ages. Testing time is not a time for the student to be learning how to do the test as even the smallest of things (such as bubble in) can cause the student to lose valuable content test time thus getting a lower score. Make sure students know what to expect. As an educator, you can envision your tasks as twofold. The first being to teach the content and second if you can assist students to be ‘good’ test takers, you will be helping them open the doors for their future. It is the goal of this workshop to help you reach both of those tasks.
