Iowa Assessments: Smart Testing Tips

WDMCS students in grades 3-8 and 11 will be taking the Iowa Assessments in late March and early April. Here are three expert tips that will help your child do his or her best on testing days:

  1. Make sure your child is well-rested and eats a good breakfast the day of the test.
  2. Students should dress in layers so they can stay comfortable during the test.
  3. Handle nerves before the test by stretching or taking a few deep breaths.

Keep these tips in mind on the following Iowa Assessments testing dates:

  • Elementary Schools: April 10-14
  • Indian Hills Junior High: March 27-31
  • Stilwell Junior High: March 27-31 and April 2-7
  • Valley Southwoods and Valley High School: April 6-13
