Home Spun comic strip #579
The year this happened, Marina took the test three times. The second time she was checking her work and was surprised by how many questions she had missed. When I was checking to see if she had filled the darn bubbles completely, I noticed the large amount of erasures and figured out what happened. The third time around she fixed her mistakes using the correct test. Then I spent a large amount of time making sure everything that needed to be erased was fully erased. I know I'm paranoid about this. I get flashbacks to my own childhood experiences with standardized tests. I was always afraid the scan reader would reject my bubble filling and I would fail miserably.
It came as no surprise when the testing company we were using later changed the format so that we only received the questions for her level.
