Test workshop set at school

Motivational speaker Bruce Boguski will provide a free seminar Tuesday to discuss his new book, “The Testing Zone,” which provides techniques to allow students to raise their test scores by improving memory and retention, increasing creativity and learning how to relax in pressure situations.

The seminar will take place at 6 p.m. at the Wapakoneta Performing Arts Center and is open to the public.

Wapakoneta City Schools Superintendent Keith Horner encourages students, parents and teachers to attend.

“The seminar will have some communication pieces between parents and their kids and teachers and students that will help everybody do their best,” Horner said.

Horner said the presentation is especially timely with the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) taking place May 1-9 for grades 3 through 8. The OAA exams will test students on their knowledge of mathematics, reading, social studies, science and writing. It also measures how aligned the district’s students are with Ohio’s academic content standards. The results will be reflected in the district’s state report card released once a year.
