ACT and MME Experience

PTSO POSSIBLE ACTIVITIES ♦ Planning special activities ♦ Hosting guest speakers ♦ Sponsoring field trips ♦ Chaperoning events ♦ Making two way communication plans

My experience with the ACT and MME was actually not bad at all. The best way to prepare for it is to study and taking an ACT prep course that helps a lot so you’re familiar with the way it’s laid out and good ways of taking it. For me personally it wasn’t a bad experience, but I was a little nervous on how I would do but I found out the best way to be ready for the ACT and MME is to study the night before and a little before you take it and during the time you’re taking it just try to relax the best you can. It’s also a long test so the best thing you can do is sleep well the night before and eat a good breakfast before since you aren’t allowed to get up during it except for very short breaks once in a while, and that you’re not distracted by being hungry and tired the whole time. Also being prepared with a few pencils and a calculator helps a lot too because if your pencil breaks you can’t get up and the calculator can help a lot with most of the math questions. Jim Eller "As a parent, it's easy to get caught up in the pressure placed on our children during the MME/ACT exams. I know with my child, I worried that I should be doing more to help him succeed, no doubt conveying my anxiety to him. Since elevating anxiety levels didn't seem to be productive, I found it more helpful to step back, relax and be positive, showing confidence that he'd do his best, whatever that may be."

And when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they go to are better."
