Parent's Guide to High Stakes Testing was designed to give you information about the state assessments that your child must take in elementary, middle, and high school. These tests are a critical part of your child's education because they are designed to measure his/her grade level abilities to determine whether or not he or she is meeting the academic standards set by the school and your State Department of Education. Every state has, or is well on its way to establishing, exit examination requirements in English and Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. This book is divided into three sections-elementary, middle, and high school-and explains the concept and contents of the new tests for each level and subject. It provides samples and practice questions with answers and explanations. Plus you'll find tips for helping you help your child succeed.
