I didn't give the tests but I have a child that did and I agree they should alter weeks. I also can't believe we test kids for 6 days in 2 weeks; we don't even do that to high school students!

Without giving specific details about individual items, how did the tests seem compared to last year?

Hello, I just wanted to put this bug out there and hope people would support me on it. I feel strongly that if NYS is going to test Math & ELA in consecutive weeks that they should vary the weeks, and math should be first next year. I know some kids did less than their best today because they were just really tired of testing. I am going to write this in the comments section of the "what did you think of the tests" survey we get each year, and I hope you all will too. Thanks Pete Mechalke Trumansburg Middle School
