The main thing that teachers look for is growth. If a student suddenly drops, it shows us that either they did not try on the assessment or there were some serious gaps in their learning. At the beginning and end of every year, teachers use this data to place students into their appropriate classes and create interventions for students that can be done in the classroom.
Some factors that help a student achieve a higher score in math is to take their time (there is no time limit and they can continue at a later date), show all of their work, and be persistent in solving their problems. With this, students can show what they know on the test with their best. I'm sorry, I had to rhyme there. :)
