I sometimes let my students go into the fellowship hall in the next room to take tests. It is quieter in there, I can peek in on them every so often, and they know they can come ask me a question (about the directions only) anytime they need to do so. So, I went in to check on the sixth graders one morning. The two ladies were seated at separate tables using normal chairs. And the gentleman, well, . . . this is what I saw.
And these gentlemen made honor roll grades as well--and they were taking a five-page American history test complete with maps and essay questions. Awesome! I separated all of the students who were taking this test so that they would “avoid every appearance of evil”. No tests were within eye shot of any of them. But to do this, we have to really spread out and use extra tables, desks, the couch, and the bench. As long as they are making good grades and behaving themselves (which they truly do), I give them some leeway.
