MORRIS - Over an eleven day window in October, students in first through eighth grade each spent between two and three hours in school computer labs, working on tests to measure reading, math and language usage. They'll all be in the labs two more times this year to take the tests again.


In April, students across the school will take a series of state-mandated assessment tests with implications for school funding and their own graduation.
