Challenge Test prep takes too much time and is ineffective


Our teachers feel tremendous pressure to prepare their students to do well on district and state tests. In response they spend considerable time weeks before the test on test-like items, teaching test-taking strategies. This effort has little payoff in increasing student achievement and students learn nothing new. How can we help teachers turn test prep into learning?
