Gifted and Talented Universal Screener for 6th Graders

Posted September 13, 2023

How your student can prepare for test taking—and what you can do to help
You can help your student do his or her best by considering these tips:

  • Make sure your student is in school and on time on test days. Reschedule dentist appointments
    and other out-of-school time on non-testing days.
  • Make sure your student gets a good night’s sleep and eats a healthy breakfast before each day
    of testing.
  • Remind your student that these tests are only one part of the school day. Emphasize that you
    have confidence in his or her ability to do the best job possible.

Remind your student to listen carefully to the directions and to each question as it is read aloud
during testing, and to ask the teacher for help if he or she does not understand the directions.
This assessment will be administered at your child’s school on Tuesday, September 19th. Makeup
testing will be held the following week on Tuesday, September 26th.
