Why Do My Students Need Test Prep?

Standardized testing is quickly becoming an important part of the elementary school experience.   In many states, standardized tests are now used to measure student progress and identify areas of need. As a result, preparing for these tests has become a top priority for many schools and teachers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the most popular standardized tests is the PARCC test, which is used in several states. The PARCC test covers Math and English Language Arts, and it is aligned with the Common Core State Standards. This means that students who do well on the PARCC test are demonstrating mastery of the material that they are expected to know at their grade level.

In order to help elementary school students prepare for standardized tests, many schools are offering standardized test prep lessons.  These classes focus on providing students with the skills and knowledge they need to do well on the test.   Our Standardized Testing through Hip Hop is a perfect additional to standardized test prep classes already in place and drives home useful strategies that will help to reduce anxiety and build confidence. As a result, standardized test prep classes in concert with this fun, interactive school assembly can be an important part of helping your elementary school students succeed.
