STAAR Test Tips

In Weatherford ISD, we believe the STAAR test is just one measure of a student’s academic progress. Nevertheless, STAAR testing days can be especially stressful for both students and parents. Below are some tips to help you help your child approach this week’s STAAR test dates like it’s just another school day.

1. Get plenty of rest!

Studies continue to show the correlation between a good night’s sleep and academic performance. It’s recommended that children ages of 6 to 13 get 9-11 hours of sleep; for teenagers it’s 8-10 hours.

Tip: Turn off electronics about an hour before bedtime.

2. Get organized.

A rushed and hectic morning could potentially have your child stressed before even entering their classroom.

Tip: Help your child select clothes, prepare lunches, and get school supplies ready before going to bed.

3. Eat Breakfast.

Multiple studies show that students who eat breakfast tend to be more alert and ready to learn in the classroom.

Tip: Plan for your child to eat breakfast at home or school.

4. Support and encourage.

Encourage your child to relax and to approach STAAR test days like any other school day. Your child’s teacher(s) has been preparing them for this moment.

Tip: Do a quick review with your child to reassure they are prepared for the test.

5. Write your child an encouraging message

“You’ve got this!” Knowing you are rooting for them, can boost your child’s confidence.

Tip: Consider putting a note of encouragement in your child’s backpack or text a message to your child before they begin testing.
