Are students having a hard time following directions? This test is an algebra test with content covered in the 5th and 6th grade, but it is kind of a trick. The students are required to read the instructions and then read all the questions before they answer. At the bottom of the test, they find a problem that says that if they read through the whole test without answering any questions, they get a hundred. The kids always laugh after I give them this one.
