Every nine weeks high school students get to pick their test. Yes, you read right. They get to pick what book they test on and have nine weeks to read and quiz. Once point goal attempts are made, the can go ahead and start their choice for the next nine weeks. As all good procrastinators know, the last minute slide to the library, or teacher's class, doesn't always work out so well. Especially if you catch them at their lunch break. Oh, but you gotta love those sweet faces and wish them well.
