'There is a great need for this book!? ?Mary Allan, 2004 California Teacher of the Year Sometimes tests prove very little and somebody gets left behind even when they'rethinking. Since standardized testing became a priority for schools, nine-year-old JefferyTaylor's academic life has become pure torture. He suffers from a condition called testanxiety: when he takes a test, his stomach aches, his eyes hurt, he feels like his headis going to blow up, and, at times, he visibly trembles. Jeff's active imagination hasn't helped his success at school either'especially if he'sdrawing when he's supposed to be working on other subjects. But schoolwork is nothis only problem. His classmate, Matt Huggins, is a real pest, and Jeff and his bestfriend, Terry, are growing apart. But Jeff is delighted when he meets a new friend whohelps him to face his academic challenges. Testing is a tremendous issue in schools today. It can have a lasting effect on fundingas schools balance the need to meet accountability standards with the desire toprovide learning to students.
