These young children now experience the stress of having to “pass” the test in order to be promoted (a process continued through high school graduation.). Standardized Testing Skills provides the materials that prepare teachers, parents and students for this undertaking.
The purpose of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 was to “drive broad gains in student achievement and to hold states and schools more accountable.” As early as third grade, students are required to master the grade curriculum while also becoming proficient in test taking skills.
