PSSA Tips

  • Encourage your child to do well, but don’t pressure him/her.  You may stress him/her out.
  • It is important for your child to stay relaxed on the test day.  Show your child that you are already proud of his/her work as a student.  Tell them how smart you know he/she is.  This will help build your child’s confidence.
  • Keep a positive attitude about tests.
  • Mark down test days on your calendar so that you and your child are both aware of testing dates.
  • Make sure that your child gets enough sleep the night before the test.
