  •  Exactly! We take our Iowa Tests in "dugouts" or (0+ / 0-)

    advisee groups. I have 12 in my group. Sometimes I meet with another teacher to get to 24 in our testing group. Each teacher and counselor has a group and stays with them for 4 years. It seems to help kids take the tests more seriously. We also give incentives like a day off and ice cream. Silly, but it seems to motivate them. Sleeping on a test they need to get credit is beyond my experience.
