In a typical classroom, test day is met with silence, except for a shuffling of papers and the tapping of pencils. students groan when they hear that it's test day. Some students take it a step further and try to find the easy way out without being caught.
In my classroom, test days have become a favorite, a chance to test students' skills and achieve victory. Students both collaborate and work individually to prove themselves. They ask about tests in advance and if students miss one of my test days, they sulk over it.
