The best way to prepare for a test, once requisite skills are in place, is to take practice tests as they are an excellent practice for the real exam. It is optimal for students to take multiple tests written by multiple authors and to then focus on their mistakes. They need to recognize question types and associated/alternate methods for successful completion.
During the first 2 hours students take a full length math and LA practice test. We return students results and then spend the remaining time reviewing each of the math and LA questions that require review, reviewing skills and teaching test taking strategies.
Students take the tests, their results, and details on how the class performed on each individual question home (sample here). Summary statistics will be shared with parents (a sample of shared results).
It’s all about conditioning them for the big day (managing their time, being prepared, finding weaknesses, reviewing forgotten topics, waking up early).
Each Practice Exam will include a unique math and language arts test with questions similar, or slightly more challenging, than the MCVSD entrance exam. These exams have not been used during any other program this year.
Please note that the same exam is given at different times during the same weekend – sign up for the time that meets your families needs but don’t sign up for the same exam twice! For example, Exam 12 is offered on 1/21 at both 8:30 and 1pm.
