ABSTRACT
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 has placed a greater emphasis on standardized tests and, thereby, test preparation. Instructors, parents, and schools can employ a number of strategies to improve students' test readiness and ensure that students perform to the best of their abilities on standardized tests. Some of these strategies include curriculum integration, test prep homework, school-wide test prep weeks, extending the school day, and the use of products from private test prep companies. Schools and teachers also need to be aware of the barriers they may face - such as a lack of resources or poor instruction quality - so that they may address and overcome these obstacles.
