IAR State Testing
Tips on Preparing your Child for the IAR State Test!
Read a combination of fiction and non-fiction aloud or with your child. Look for subjects of interest—from sports heroes to dinosaurs.
Discuss and “do” real-life math with your child. Help him/her know basic math facts.
Discuss the tests with your child. Make sure he/she is not scared or anxious going into the tests.
Utilize the Kahn Academy Website. It has supportive math and reading content.
Support the extended response questions with the following key board websites- Culver Typing Club, Super Hyper Spider Typer, Dance Mat Typing.
Familiarize your child with online tools such as a basic calculator, a scientific calculator, Hit the Coordinate, and Age of Angles.
Explain to your child that the tests will initially be more challenging. Tell your child to do his/her best on the test and that you are there to help every step of the way.
After the test, review the results with your child. Bring the teacher into the discussion as needed.
Provide a quiet, comfortable place for studying at home and make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast before the tests.
Above all, be positive and encouraging about the tests.
