Assessment Tips for Families

At Salt River Schools, our focus is on student growth. We meet students where they are at academically, then set goals with students and families to meet over the course of the school year.

Our educators are committed to helping students do their best. One of our greatest tools to helping students succeed is family involvement. Students are more likely to excel when parents and guardians make learning a priority in the home, which includes asking about daily schoolwork, staying in touch with teachers, and attending school events.

Here are some tips to creating a learning-focused home:

  • Make sure your child is on time to school every day. Attendance matters.
  • You can support your child by learning about the skills being assessed on the test. Ask teachers what sample questions might look like, and talk with your student about the assessment.
  • Set shared goals with your child’s teacher for what your child needs to know and be able to do during this school year.
  • Check in regularly on your child’s progress to see where they might need help. Use these questions to kick start the conversation with your child’s teachers.
  • Help your child continue learning at home with fun activities you can do together found in these grade-by-grade guides.
  • Talk with your child about the assessment. Your conversations can help your child to not be afraid or anxious when taking the test this spring.
  • If test scores are lower than expectations, talk to your child’s teacher and work together to determine a plan to help your child improve.
