It's that time of year again...ISTEP testing in Indiana
March brings stress and anxiety for thousands of Indiana students with the much dreaded ISTEP exam. Today was the first day of testing, but also the first day of school after setting the clocks an hour ahead over the weekend. It was also the first day of our extended school day (an hour added to each day), making up for the 2 weeks of school we missed due to snow. To ease our 3rd grade students into the testing experience, we decorated their hallway with some inspirational banners sporting test taking strategies and positive reinforcement. This is their first round of testing, with tests next week and then again in April. Our Title I students were equipped with the tools necessary to handle their first test taking experience with success.
