The end of the school year often comes with stress to get your grades up, procrastinated assignments suddenly seeming more important, and frantically searching through an oversized binder to find that one missing paper. Probably the greatest of many students’ worries is SAGE Testing. Like any other overwhelmingly important test, the teachers stress to their students to get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast, and bring a water bottle if they want. SAGE Testing takes information from the start of the year to the end, and puts them all into one great big test. Though they don’t speak very highly of this unnerving test, students do seem excited to see their score at the end. Perhaps it’s because they get to see how well they did. Or maybe it’s simply because they know they’re finally done.
