Editorial Reviews

Jolene Dockstader
"An excellent tool to help teachers address issues related to testing so thatthose factors do not hinder student success. With an easy format and clear, concise instructions, the book tells not only how but why."
Tanya Marcinkewicz
"The authors present strategies that teachers should use throughout the school year, so that students are truly able to 'show what they know' onmandated state tests."
Tamika Barrett
"Connects research to practice and gives examples and strategies for integrating techniques into the general curriculum. The book in itself is a resource, not an additional curriculum."
Ganna Maymind
"What makes this book stand out is the emphasis on a positive attitude toward test preparation and test taking. The strategies are easy to follow and very practical for educators. The authors are humorous and motivating, and as teachers read this book, they will have many 'me too' moments and will want to use the activities and suggestions presented."
