I thought this article was interesting. http://www.washingtonpost.com/local...0e9d1e-ee9f-11e2-bed3-b9b6fe264871_story.html I send home tests when I'm allowed to, meaning everything other than our Story Town Theme Tests and math benchmark tests. We have to keep these tests for a year after the child leaves our class so that's why we don't send them home. In my mind, the only reason teachers don't send tests home is because they don't want to have to make new tests each year. And again, in the case of our Story Town tests, they're made by the company so this is also probably why our district doesn't want them sent home as the same exact tests are given each year. The comment about the "unfair advantage" blew me away. The first comment under the article sums up my thoughts on it pretty well.
