Thought About AIR Testing

This week was the AIR testing for English and Social Studies.  Every year we have to take these tests for 2 hours and not know how we did until months later.  I went around the school to find out what people thought about these tests. Gavin Scocos said, “I hate the test they are so stressful and the teachers put so much pressure on us to do good when it doesn’t even affect our grade.”  Andy Koozer said, “There not that bad If you just try your best and get them done.” Most students seem to think these test are dumb and pointless, but that’s not what the teachers said. Mrs. Seely said, “These tests are a very important part of the students education and also evaluate how much they have learned.”  Many teachers said the same thing. This has been a very long ongoing debate between the students and teachers and it doesn’t look like it’s going to end any time soon. So student, your just going to have to suck it up and get it done.
