What the Expert Says:

There could be a variety of reasons why your child does not do well on her tests.  I would recommend that your first step is to ask the teacher what she sees are potential reasons so that you know how to help your child.  Based on what the teacher says and what the teacher does to help the children with testing problems, you can see how best to supplement and help your child.  
Regardless of what the teacher advises, most children who have problems at this early age often have them because they either cannot read, do not understand what they read, they do not know how to follow instructions, or they do not know how to focus.
