Abstract:
Assessment in the classroom is an essential part of the basics of education. Assessment varies in types, forms, and how results affect the students being assessed. In a time of high stakes standardized testing where teachers, schools, and administrators are held accountable for student progress as measured by tests. Any and all measures to prepare students should be brought into the classroom. Test taking skills and strategies that have been proven effective lack research and use in the area of early elementary, especially in the 3rd grade a pivotal year in Arizona’s AIMS testing. As a result of this study the research identified that implementing test taking strategies improved the scores of a third grade classroom of a southern Arizona school.
