As students in Florida this week begin taking standardized tests -- the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests as well as End of Course exams in U.S. history, algebra, geometry and biology for some students -- educators say they are working to alleviate students' anxiety by creating more relaxed environments. Besides reassuring students they are well-prepared for the high-stakes exams, school officials also have been administering mock exams to help students get a feel for the protocols and provided preparation kits to students and their families.
