Your Score Is 12 out of 24
Your Child’s Current SituationLast semester, your child put in a lot of effort. They were getting great homework scores, yet they did poorly on tests. It was heartbreaking to see them push through the homework assignments, and even complete them, day in and day out, just to bomb on tests. It made your child feel “stupid” and less than other children who scored higher. They felt discouraged. And rightly so! What’s the point of doing the work, trying, figuring out math problems, if at the end they still do poorly? Tests are as much as 80% of your child’s grade while homework is only 10-15%. What is the point of spending time and effort working on the 15% if your tests scores end up being so low?
You were shocked and confused.It makes no sense to you! Shouldn’t high (or even perfect!) homework scores translate to high test scores? And what is this difference caused by?
Is it caused by your child’s test anxiety?
Do they shut down during tests or blank out?
