I've taken the CMT and the DRP every year since 3rd grade

Errr... you mean tests like the STAR and stuff? o.o;

Well, I took the PSAT, but that wasn't really required... I forgot... o.x;

Oh, I took the PSAT! I got my test results back a few days ago, and let me just say... well, at least I spelled my name correctly for 200 points, hehe.

As for other tests, we're required to take the FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test... or how we like to call it: F-CAT, hehe) every year starting from 3rd grade and ending at 10th, but that's pretty much the only huge one... until SAT's come, of course.

I took a bunch...I dont remember the names...--
We had to take a really annoying one called the ERB's this year

SATs (pronounced sats, not S.A.Ts) Just some stupid thing invented by the government to set school league tables, and for schools to receive extra unding if they have uber brilliant or uber crap students. Took them when I was 7, 11 and 14. Will take GCSEs next year. ^_^

o_o; I've only ever taken the Ontario Literacy Test. @[email protected] All the people in grade 10 have to take it and pass it in order to receive their high school diploma. I missed out on all the EQAO testing in grades 3, 6 and 9, though. That basically tests math, reading and writing. =o

Ugh, CMT's. x_x I hated those. We had to take them every even grade between 4th and 8th and practice ones all the other years. Then sophomore year we had to take the CAPT. And as of my class, we had to pass the state goal in order to graduate. But I thought it was really easy... and since I passed them all last year, this year when they come around I get to sleep in late everyday for a week! ^^

Besides state testing, I've taken the PSAT's twice (this year and last) and the AMC's which is a math exam, also twice. I'll have to take the AMC's again this year too.

The EQAO in Grades 3, 6, 9 (Math), 10 (English). The grade six one I had to rush. I was on vacation (yay Disney World) and I missed a day or so of it, so I had to cram everything in. 9 was annoying, and 10 was piece of cake. All I can remember from Grade 3 is that I was super happy over not having homework.

I've had to take the Terra Nova test before.It was pretty easy.But lots of people purposly called it the "Terror Nova".

I think I'm taking the CAHSEE next week or something... (California High School Exit Exam) *cries*

My PSAT scores sucked... ;_;

I've taken the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) because I need to pass it to graduate. It is a really easy test though. I think when compared to the rest of the state, I was in the top five percent of students...

I've also taken the SAT and got a good 1230 on it. ^_^

Hmm, I might have forgotten some, but...

Stanford 9(might have been standford, who knows?)... I think this test eventually got scrapped. Dunno though.

Hanna Orleans(or something like that) This was one to see how fast kids would catch on to math in the 5th grade, then they would place you in your math class for the next year with your parent's approval(Math6, PreAlgebra, Algebra, or Geometry, if I remember correctly). Not sure if it's still in use...

SOLs- just another localized school test that you have to pass to graduate... It's debating on being scrapped, because people only study SOL core concepts(they pick random parts of a course) to test you on. Meaning that nobody has a real understanding of their subject, just the subject's SOLs...

PSAT- do I need to explain?

SAT- Same as PSAT, without a P :P

I took the PSAT and ACT (or something like that). I don't remember my scores though because it's been a while since I took them.

I have done my SATs and some GCSEs too, I don't really know much about the other ones though.

Let's see... There was this Iowa test (Iowa test of basic skills, I think it was called) I had to take when I was in grade school, forgot the grade though. I think it was third and forth?

And then 5 and 6, we had to take Terra Nova x_x;; it was like the Iowa test. What's with the government and wanting to give us standerdized testing every year after the third grade?

9th grade we did some for this career thing (maybe those didnt count though.. x_x; )

And I guess our high school is doing some more in March for math (for the 10th graders anyway)... I don't like standerdized tests much. They take too long. x.x;
