You can’t study for them and you won’t get a grade. On these kinds of tests, you get a test score that tells you, your teachers, and your parents how well you did. The results from these tests help teachers and principals find out how much their students are learning from year to year. Some of these tests are achievement tests. Achieve- ment tests measure what you have learned in school up until now. Some are ability tests. Ability tests measure how well you are able to learn new things. Most state tests have time limits. Sometimes stu- dents run out of time and are not able to finish the test. Whenever you take a state test, try to remember to organize your time. “Get plenty of sleep the night before any test. Eat a good breakfast and get to school on time. Then just relax and do your best.” Mrs. Cline, teacher State tests are important, and you should try to do your best on them. But these tests are not so important that you should worry about them.
