Here are a few last minute tips and reminder.

Students should be well rested the week before testing; especially the night before.  A tired student will have difficulty focusing and/or handling the demands of a test.

Give your student a well-rounded breakfast. Evidence suggests that eating a healthy breakfast really does make the mind alert and active, which will help the student to do their best during testing.  HERI does NOT provide snacks and drinks. Please send them with your children as they will be given a snack time. Neither snacks, drinks, or gum are permitted in the classrooms.

On the drive to the testing site, encourage your student.  If they feel good about themselves, they will do their best.  Pray for peace.  Students who are afraid of failing are more likely to become anxious and more likely to fail.  Be relaxed.  If you are at peace, the student will be too.  Remind your student that a blank answer is a wrong answer and they should use the process of elimination to attempt to answer the questions.

Please arrive on time.  Testing begins at promptly at 9:00am.  It is best to arrive at 8:45am, so the student can relax and not feel rushed.  If for any reason you arrive late to testing, your student will need to wait for the next sub-test to begin.  Please see the information table when you arrive.  It will be the responsibility of the parent to contract with a teacher to have the missed sub-test rescheduled; which requires additional fees.

Please provide a sweater or jacket for the student so they can stay comfortable during testing.  Also provide a book for the student to read if they finish early.  HERI allows the full time allotted for sub-tests and each student will need to stay in the classroom and wait quietly until the test is done.

All phones are to be turned off while a student is in the classroom.  If a student’s cell phone rings, beeps, is used, or held, the student will be asked to leave the classroom and forfeit the remainder of their subtest.  All electronic handheld games, e-readers, and calculators are not allowed in the classroom.

When you arrive at the testing site, please locate the grade lists (on the wall) and confirm your student’s information.  Next, locate the flag of your student’s grade and wait for announcements and their teacher.  There will be an information table in the “Family Waiting Area” for questions and concerns.  Please advise a volunteer at the information desk if you are not able to stay and leave a contact number.   Parents of 1st and 2nd graders are asked to stay on site in the event a child or teacher needs them.

Please do not call church offices.  Their staff does not have group testing information.
