Stupid ISTEP

A yearly tradition for elementary school students in Indiana is the ISTEP test. It's basically a standardized test that determines how a school is doing and if a student can move on. They were always given in March, and oh man, the teachers were on edge. They made it seem as if the test was the most important thing that would ever happen to us. Most of us believed it, too.

The only part I remember, and it's because it was the same every single year, was a fake vocabulary memorization part. It really was the same every year. You were always guaranteed of getting at least a couple questions right because you knew they were going to be there.

1. A yonker is a young man. Remember, a yonker is a young man.

2. Wuzzle means to mix. Remember, wuzzle means to mix.

3. A baloo is a bear. Remember, a baloo is a bear.

4. Daddock is rotten wood. Remember, daddock is rotten wood.

5. Sculch is junk. Remember, sculch is junk.

Yep, I remember.
