YoJo’s ACE YOUR TEST assembly program will get your students to be well prepared, confident, and energized to put forth their best effort.

Show Title: “Ace Your Test”

Subject: Standardized Test Preparation

Age / Grade Level: All elementary grades taking a standardized test.

Program Length: Approx. 45-50 min.

Key Messages: This show covers very specific test-taking strategies and has been co-developed directly with educators who know these tests thoroughly. Some of the important points that an ACE YOUR TEST show may include:

  • Important student preparations before the test. (Getting a good night’s sleep, eating a healthy breakfast, showing up on time, etc.)

  • Paying close attention to all instructions, questions, and answer choices.

  • The proper way to fill out answers on traditional pencil & paper tests OR reviewing technology enhanced items and tools for computerized tests.

  • Using the process of elimination to make a better educated guess at tough multiple-choice questions.

  • Writing ‘open-ended’ constructed responses clearly and neatly.

  • Supporting constructive responses with proof, evidence and detail.

  • Most importantly: Confidence and a great attitude!

Of course, each standardized test is different in style and format, so we modify our program according to your needs.

Show Synopsis: YoJo is extremely nervous about taking tests. In fact, YoJo faints when he finds out he must take a live “jumbo-sized” test challenge in front of all the children. The show host and all of the students help prepare and coach YoJo during this challenge. YoJo initially makes a lot of hysterical but common mistakes and does pretty poorly, but throughout the show he learns several beneficial test-taking strategies and improves tremendously.  YoJo ultimately develops a strong confidence to “Ace his Test!”
