The dates for the WKCE testing window are as follows:  October 28 - November 29.  Please avoid dental or doctors' appointments during this time.  A more specific testing schedule will be coming out soon.  If your child has the interest, allow him/her to go to the following website and work through the released test items for practice.  http://oea.dpi.wi.gov/oea_releaseitems

WKCE TestTakingTips
Get enough sleep (8 hours) in the nights prior to the test. 
Eat right. Have a good breakfast the morning of the exam.  Some suggestions include whole 
grain cereals, skim milk, fresh fruit, or toast with peanut butter.  
You may bring water with you into the testing room. You may also have a quick, simple 
snack (such as some fruit or vegetables) to eat in between test sessions.  
Dress comfortably; you may want to wear layers. Some rooms will feel cold to some 
students; others may seem warm. Dressing in layers allows you to be comfortable no 
matter what the situation.  
Have several #2 pencils available each day.  
Make sure you have the correct test booklet every day. Be sure you are marking answers in 
the correct section in the test booklet. If you have a question about the directions, you may 
ask the teacher.  
Read the question before you look at the answer.  
Read all the answer choices before choosing your answer.  Start at the bottom answer and work up.  
Choose the BEST answer to each question. Remember, some answers will look good, but 
only one can be the BEST answer.  
Don't keep on changing your answer; your first choice is usually the right one, unless you 
discover new information. 
Answer every question! Eliminate the answer choices you know are wrong, but guess if you 
need to. There is no penalty for wrong answers, only points gained for correct answers.  
Mark only the circle that goes with the answer you have chosen. Remember to “make your 
mark heavy and dark.” If you change your answer, be sure to completely erase the previous 
Be precise in marking your answers; the WKCE is machine-scored. Do not leave any stray 
marks on the booklet.  
When you have finished checking your work at the end of the test, remain quiet and do not 
disturb other students.
