When it comes to C.A.T.S. tests, teachers say they are under a lot of pressure to do well. And some will go to extremes to avoid the "catastrophic."
Today the principal of Rich Pond Elementary, Shawn Holland, put on a dress and wig all in hopes of motivating students to do well on their tests. In addition, teachers put on a style show to give students an idea of how a bad tester would probably dress. All week Rich Pond has been doing events like this in preparation of the tests.
Schools around the state are preparing for tests in their own way. Many have administered "mock" tests to help students.
Warren County schools start testing April 26. Tests last for two weeks.
