Testing Rules
(Please go over with your children)

* No talking during the instructions and during the test

* Questions can ONLY be asked when the teacher says, “Are there any questions?” and you CANNOT call out your questions (you must give a quite “thumbs up”)

* Teachers CANNOT help students during the test – students should work on doing their best INDEPENDENTLY

* Students are NOT ALLOWED to leave the testing room until the test is over (so NO bathroom trips)

* Students cannot talk to other students during the test
