Improving test scores and grades can be a tough task for a child of any age. A good solution?
Review tests and quizzes together…
This isn’t fun, but it is important. Take the time to sit down and review graded tests or papers together. Start out with the positive, and acknowledge what your child got right or did well. Then review any mistakes and ask your child about what trips her up during tests. See if she struggles with certain types of questions (multiple choice vs. written answers) or is having trouble with the overall subject or a specific topic. A child may understand complex subtraction but be baffled by simple multiplication. Acknowledge that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and commit to helping your child improve in problem areas.
