Those lucky kids all get laptops?! Nice photo.

Oh yeah! Everything is on the COWs now (Computers On Wheels). There are no paper & pencil tests. We've found that the kids are less likely to use the highlighter & cross out wrong answers when it is all a computer tool.
I do love how quiet & calm it is during the tests, tho. It's almost my favorite part of the day. Shhhh!

Oh they look so miserable!

Yeah - they were miserable. If you enlarge the picture, you can see how many of them have to hold their heads up. A few have shoes off. SO PAINFUL! I guess it was worth it because our preliminary scores are EXCELLENT!
