Become Knowledgeable About the Test
The Diagnostic and FSA assesses a child's knowledge of the grade level Standards at a particular point in time. For more information and sample practice tests, please go to the FSA Assessments website.

Ensure a Good Night's Sleep and Attendance
Make sure your child is in school during the testing sessions. Students should get plenty of rest the night before, and on the morning of the test, make sure your child wakes up in plenty of time so the student does not feel rushed.

Provide A Healthy Breakfast
Studies show that students that have eaten a healthy breakfast score much better on tests than those students who are hungry and unable to fully concentrate during tests.

Cell Phones/Electronic Devices
Students may NOT have any electronic devices or recording devices at their desk, in their pockets, or anywhere they can be reached during testing, even if they are turned off or not used.

Encourage Your Child To Do His/Her Best
Remind your student that they have studied and worked hard all year, and they have every reason to feel confident that they will be successful. Encourage your child to relax and do their best.
