We are being tested

Kiddos in Minnesota are undergoing MCA's -- Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments.
So are their parents.
This testing is comprehensive.
As you can see from the graph above, it has taken a toll on Elmer's mood.
Mine, too. As he yelled at me this morning, I asked "Does this help you feel better?"
"Yes," he exploded.
I am sucking up and dealing.
How do you cope with school testing?

  1. It affects Nigel, too. I always know when there's testing going on because he gets very snippy around me, and generally unpleasant. I do the same thing - suck it up and deal. I think Elmer's graph is probably a helpful visualization strategy. But I know it's still hard for them.
