CRCTs are Here!This week, students in third through eighth grade will take the Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests. The purpose of the CRCT is to provide information on academic achievement at the student, class, school, system and state levels. Page 5 of last week's newsletter has the specific calendar of which test is administered which day.We encourage you to help your children do their best on these tests by making sure they are in school every day, and especially on testing days.Give your child encouragement. Praise him/her for the things done well throughout the year. A child who is afraid of failing is more likely to make a mistake.Ensure that your child has a well-rounded diet. A healthy body leads to a healthy, active mind. Make sure your child has a good breakfast on testing days and every day.Keep the lines of communication open between home and school. Parents and teachers should work together to benefit the child.Make sure your child is well rested on school days. Tired children are less likely to pay attention in class or to handle the demands of classwork and tests.Try not to be overly anxious about test scores. Too much emphasis on test scores can be upsetting to children.Don’t judge a child on the basis of a single test score. Test scores are not perfect measures of what a child can do. There are many other things that might influence a test score. For example, a child can be affected by the way he/she feels that day, physically and/or mentally.Follow normal routines. Interruptions of normal routines may affect your child’s performance.Don’t forget eyeglasses or hearing aids. If your child wears an assistive device, such as glasses or hearing aids, be sure he/she remembers to bring it and wear it during all testing sessions.Plan ahead for medical appointments. Avoid scheduling doctor’s or dentist’s appointments during testing times.
