Terra Nova for Second Grade Students

Second grade students will take the Terra Nova Tests between November 28-December 1, 2023. Testing will take place throughout the day. You can help your child do their best on the test by:

  • Ensure your child attends school on the days of testing and arrives on time. Once a testing session has begun, children may not enter the classroom until the next break. Also, unless they become ill, children should not be called out of the room or allowed to leave the classroom during a testing session. Breaks are given between tests. 
  • Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep the night before testing.
  • Ensure your night's Chromebook is completely charged and brought to school daily. 
  • Providing breakfast for your child.
  • Reminding your child to ask the teacher questions if your child does not understand the test directions.
  • Let your child know you have confidence in their ability to do their best.
  • Advising your child not to worry about the test -- just do the best they can.
