TIPS to be successful on the EOG

  1. Start your day off with a good breakfast and learn to “breathe” deeply to help you think. Oxygen gives your brain power and helps you to calm down.
  2. Think positively. You can do this. Imagine what you will do later today to celebrate! At any point during the test feel free to breathe deeply, roll your head, wiggle your feet or softly shake out your arms.Try not to hold the pencil so tightly that it hurts your hand or arm later.
  3. Throughout the entire month of May, have your child go to bed early or on time. Lessen the late night activities, television and video games during the week and prioritize rest.
  4. Eat healthy well-balanced meals, especially for breakfast. Pop-tarts and donuts are quick and easy to serve first thing in the morning but are not nutritious. Limit sweets and soft drinks on weekdays.
  5. Manage stress and anxiety. Take a “walk and talk” to reduce stress and open lines of communication. Give your child the opportunity to talk about his expectations, fears and hopes. His job is to do his best, whether he is an ‘A’ or ‘C’ student, everyone should be proud of him when he is giving his best effort.
  6. Start the testing day in a calm way! Allow plenty of time to say a few encouraging words, let your child know how much you believe in her and take a moment to give her a hug. Arrive at school a few minutes early if possible and remember to tell your child to ‘think success.’
  7. Remind your student to take the test seriously, listen to the directions of the proctor and ask for clarifications if he doesn’t understand the instructions on the test. It is important he read the questions carefully and review each of the potential answers prior to making his selection. He should never leave an answer blank but should instead choose the best answer to the question.
  8. If your child feels anxious during the test, taking a few deep breaths might help ease her nerves. Practice ten deep breaths with her before she goes to school.
  9. When the test is complete, your child should feel good about a job well done. Help him celebrate by spending special one on one time together. Get out the Frisbee and go to the park, create a craft, sing songs together or make a special family meal.
  10. Lastly, if your child needs to retake the test, don’t stress. Talk to the school counselor about additional stress reducing activities and repeat the above.
