My son is 8 years old in the 2nd grade. He has made straight A's since he has started school. When he was in Kindergarten he was on a 2nd grade reading level and unlike other kids he didn't have to sound out words, once you told him the word it would be apart of his vocabulary. He is now on the middle of a 5th grade reading level and again this year he is the only one in his classroom that has been chosen to get tested to be in Encore. I don't know if he will make it or not because every year he has been tested and never has passed the test to be in it. Does anyone know why he seems to not be able to pass the test? (last year he passed one test and missed the other by a couple of points)Answer Question

He may have test anxiety. Those tests are formatted differently than a regular classroom test, and have TONS more questions, which require deeper thought processes. IMO many of those tests assess unfairly. We have an Academic Academy in 4th grade, and 2 students I thought should have gotten in, didn't get accepted.
