    s. Many of them would play "connect the dots" on the scan trons. They just didn't care about the tests and wanted to finish early so they could put their heads down and sleep.
    It was very, very difficult to get them to care about their scores, especially when they really never found out how they did on the tests.

    That is why the tests are meaningless and will always be so. The students never find out how they did and an attempt to explain their scores to them the following Fall was just wasted breath.
