Completed ISATs Spend Week At Schools

ISAT testing ended on Friday, but the scores aren't supposed to be sent back by the schools until Friday (the 20th).

Why so much time before FedEx comes to pick them up, I wonder?

Sure there are some legitimate purposes -- time to assemble and sort the materials and get them boxed -- but isn't this an awfully tempting time for school-based educators with completed tests burning holes in their pockets?

What happens at your school? How much if any opportunity for dirty tricks is there during this time? Has anything changed?

The ISAT testing window has ended.

Absolutely no testing is allowed after Friday, March 13, 2009.

The pre-arranged pickup date is March 20, 2009.
