Preparing your child for admission or evaluation test is a learning experience. Recently I myself went through this experience. My daughter Tracy had to appear for Nursery Class Admission or Evaluation Test. The reason for this test is that we don’t want here to go to Play group and get admitted into the nursery class. So School administration asked that She would have to appear in an evaluation test.
I and My wife both helped her to appear in her test. Appearing to admission or evaluation test for any class is a kind of experience for both parents and teachers.
Every child is different from others. So every child has his/her own problems and feelings about the evaluation test. In my case our daughter was excited to go to school and she was mentally ready for the test.
The things me and my wife learned from this procedure sharing with you and tell you that how we helped our child to do well in her test.
Once you have decided to get your child Evaluated for Admission or some other reason, the next important thing is to start talking to his/her about the procedure of evaluation. You don’t want your child to be confused when teacher or someone shows to take the evaluation test. Given below are some of the ideas to prepare your child for upcoming test or evaluation.
Discussing the Evaluation Procedure with Child
Discuss with your child that what type of test it’s going to be be. Who is going to appear to take the test. What outcome would be after this test? Parents do need to discuss these basic things with the children in order to prepare them for their test.
Discuss with your child that what could be asked orally and what type of test could be given to his/her as written test. Moreover, tell the student that after this test teacher or administration of school would identify issues and find the ways to help you.
Talking About the Team
Also tell the child admission or evaluation test isn’t really a sort of exam or test but could be series of some activities. These activities could be in the class room or outside the class room. Guide your child that this test won’t bring any grade neither you would fail in this test. But do encourage your child to try hard and concentrate on the test during the procedure.
You should also tell your child about the team of the school. You can tell that one or more teacher could appear for the test. The child might see many people around during the test. He/she shouldn’t feel due to number of people. A Child should know that teachers are not meant for teaching only but they are there to help the student to learn.
Make your Child Feel Comfortable
Your child would be concerned about the outcome of the test and might feel uncomfortable about the result before appearing into test.
Try to comfort your child that result won’t affect him/her socially. Doesn’t matter what would be the outcome. But evaluation test is the best way for the school administration or for the teachers to decide best for a child. You should tell that this test would decide and would be helpful for teacher to help you in better way.
