I'm having some internal debate as to whether I'm preparing my students or crossing the line for upcoming district tests. So I'm reviewing, a lot of the concepts that will be on the test and forgoing stuff that isn't. For example, there will be subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators. So for HW, I assigned some subtraction review sheet and went over subtraction in class. Then a student asked "Will there be multiplication of fractions?" I responded no because they're won't be. I thought to myself, they need to know that as well but I'm ignoring it since it isn't on the test. I know I need to review concepts that we're done in the Fall but by giving sample problems, am I tarnishing the results? Am I unfairly tilting the test results by concentrating on certain topics. It's mainly the math test that I think about. I'm not worried about the Language Arts as to me that is plain cheating as I can't read the passage with them. Another example, they have to find a misspelled word and I wouldn't being doing a spelling lesson for those words the day before the test.
