Grade Retention or Low Test Scores. Improve Reading Comprehension

Third grade retention and other grade retention notices often come out in May and June.  In other cases, the parents are just made aware that their child has low test scores.  In our experience, reading comprehension is often the key issue.

Accepting third grade retention, other grade retention or low test scores is not the best option.  We strongly recommend seizing the opportunity to turn lemons into lemonade by improving your child’s reading comprehension.

Improving Reading Comprehension — The Best Way to Beat Third Grade Retention, Other Grade Retention and Low Test Scores

While test anxiety can be a factor, low reading comprehension levels has been the key problem in virtually every case where third grade retention, grade retention and/or low test scores are present.

To Get It Right, we recommend the following:

  • Reject grade retention or low test scores.  Commit to significantly improving your child’s reading comprehension
  • Identify several key factors:
    • What is your child’s present level of reading comprehension?  It is very helpful to both identify what their reading comprehension level is and for both parents to be on the same page.
    • Is your child a bright right brain neurodivergent learner, who learns best when he or she sees and experiences information?  Click here for our no cost Is my child a bright right brain neurodivergent learner screening tool?”  For more detail, go to our blog post on Is my child a right brain neurodivergent learner.
    • Determine if there are other complicating factors that might include dyslexia, executive function, auditory or visual processing, anxiety, and other challenges.
    • Seek help to both identify your child’s present level of reading comprehension, whether they are a right brain neurodivergent learner and what other issues are holding your child back.

One of our goals is to help every parent whose child may be facing third grade retention, grade retention, or low test scores.  We also want to help parents to both assess for reading comprehension level and to identify the best possible way to help your child to improve his or her reading comprehension and test scores.
