Q: How do I prepare my child for the EOGS?

• A: You can review past objectives at home by using the sample test items

on the DPI website.

Sample Math Test Items from The State: http://www.ncpublicschools.org/accountability/testing/eog/sampleitems/math3

• A: Be sure to utilize Study Island, which provides great review and test taking practice.

• A: Make sure your child is at school as much as possible to be sure that he or

she is not missing any important information.

• A: Have your student get a good night of sleep and eat a healthy breakfast every

morning. And be positive!

• Q: Are all the teachers covering the same concepts in class?

• A: Yes. All teachers follow the same state required objectives for the third grade and address all test preparation strategies.

• Q: How much writing will be on the EOG?

• A: There is no writing on the EOGs. Students will be bubbling in answers on bubble sheets.

• Q: Are there any extra resources we can use to help them prepare?

• A: You can reference the DPI website (www.ncpublicschools.org) and Study Island (www.studyisland.com), review and/or double check reading and math papers that are sent home, and practice multiplication facts. Students must know their multiplication facts automatically. This is a major portion of the math test.

• Q: Will EOG results determine where my child will be placed next year in reading and math?

• A: It is an indicator, but not the determining factor.

• Q: Will the school be selling any End of Grade Test preparation materials?

• A: Irwin will not be selling any EOG preparation materials. Teachers will be utilizing EOG preparation materials in class. However, numerous EOG preparation materials are available at local bookstores and teacher supply stores. Also, Study Island is a great resource that is available to all students free of charge.

• Q: Will EOG tutoring be offered to students at school?

• A: As a grade level we were allotted a number of tutoring spaces for

before school tutoring in reading and math.

• Q: How do the formatives correlate to the EOG? next year in reading and math?

• A: The objectives that are tested are the same on the formatives and

on the EOG tests. However, the presentation will be different.

• Q: What happens if my child does not do well on the EOG? What if they fail?

• A: Third grade is a gateway year, and all students are expected to pass their EOGs with a level III. Last year, if a student didn’t score a III they got a second chance before school ended to take the test again. They were provided intense tutoring sessions prior to the retake during school hours to help them prepare. If they needed to retest, they were only retested on the subject they didn’t pass. If they did not pass the retake, there was an appeals committee, and the final decision was made by the principal.

• Q: Are the tests timed?

• A: The tests are not timed, but the maximum time allowed is 4 hours for each test. All students are expected to finish within this time frame.

• Q: What are the dates and times for testing? next year in reading and math?

• A: Testing will be the week of May 14th, 15th, and 16th. Testing will begin promptly at 9:45 and go until every student is finished. You will receive more information about the days specific tests will be given as we approach the testing date.

• Q: Can you send home additional practice materials?

• A: Links to websites for math practice and reading EOG passages are available on our websites. Teachers are also giving EOG practice activities in class and sending an email list of EOG prep from all 50 states.

• Q: How will the testing days be structured?

• A: All students in grade 3-5 will test in the mornings. After testing they will be provided a break (recess) and then lunch. After lunch they will participate in low-key activities and/or special areas.

• Q: Will summer school be offered for students who fail? next year in reading and math?

• A: No summer school is currently being offered.

• Q: Can you study for this test?

• A: Students can best prepare for the test by completing all assigned class work and homework. They can prepare by reading daily at home. Students must practice and utilize the test taking strategies in class and at home. Also, students can prepare by attending school consistently. Study Island is a great way for them to practice at home.
