NYC Gifted and Talented Program and Testing


More parents give their Testing Mom reviews

More and more parents give their Testing Mom reviews on the internet!

Most are very positive and seems to have a personal beef with the Testing Mom. Not sure what’s going on with that relationship although it struck me as quite odd. Here’s an excerpt of their review of the Testing Mom program:

I think of testingmom as the first semester of test prep.   A few months before the test, we switched to ridiculously hard oddball brain teasers that I found in a variety of places.   I expected about 50% correct.  If you are subscribing to testingmom a month before the test, cover the intro material and skip right to the really hard questions related to the test you are going to take.  You will find these on the site, just not 20,000 of them.

Here are a couple more excerpts from reviews of Testing Mom online test prep program that are pretty positive.

My youngest just started Kindergarten this year. I started teaching Kindergarten in 1997 and in almost 20 years quite a bit has changed when it comes to Kindergarten testing and even in Kindergarten Curriculum. I know this causes quite a bit of anxiety in parents. In this video, Karen Quinn, cofounder of TestingMom.com, addresses the difference between tests given for kindergarten admissions and kindergarten readiness. Karen discusses the similarities and differences among IQ tests, achievement tests, and readiness tests. If your child is getting ready to enter kindergarten, a gifted and talented program, or a private school, this video is a must-watch.
