Abstract

This dissertation explores how educators teach test preparation to upper elementary students. Since the No Child Left Behind Act, educators have been faced with increasing pressure to meet the standards of accountability set for their state, and school district. Teachers have to prepare students for the material that will be presented to them on high-stakes testing. Are educators truly preparing students for high-stakes testing? This dissertation examines how test-preparation is being taught in the upper elementary grades. Also it gives insight into how matching test-preparation to a student learning style can increase engagement.
