Where we live, our kids are administered the STAAR test every school year. Seems that so much stress is put on these tests all year long to the point that one of my kids was so nervous the days of the test that he couldn't even eat. He's an A/B student all year long but has some test anxiety. I'm happy to say both of my boys passed or got advanced on their tests this year. However! I still don't agree with the stress put on them with these tests every year. I've read pros and cons to them online but all I can go off of is my personal experience. Would love to hear your thoughts/opinions.
