Reading teacher Schneider suggests simple strategies parents and teachers can use to help elementary and middle school students score well on standardized reading tests. These include (for example) setting up a quiet study area, planning a home reading program, and training children to read and respond to test questions carefully. The volume concludes with a review of the 12 comprehension skills normally found on standardized literacy tests.
