A primary school in Australia is crediting a no-stress approach to standardised testing for students' success. Under the model, teachers do not spend class time covering exam content, but rather do give students details about the testing format and schedule. "The kids have to feel comfortable with that and know it's going to take place in a non-threatening way," McKinnon Primary School principal Sandra Myrwoda said. "The last thing you would be wanting to tell kids is 'Today we're having a test and you've got to do well'."
