I jumped into my back to school planning by looking at the new Smarter Balanced practice tests. I don't necessarily agree with the emphasis put on testing but I know that my students will be judged on how they perform on tests. My summer test subject was my own daughter, soon to be in 4th grade. I had her test drive the 3rd grade math test to gauge her reaction. She said there were too many words that she didn't really know and the interface was fiddly and hard to maneuver.
