  1. What about:
    You never taught us that.
    I might be absent that day (of the test).
    Can we use a pencil or pen (when they only have one of those)?
    Is it for a grade?
    I’m finished (after 30 seconds).
    What does it mean when it asks us…?
    Can I go to the bathroom?

  2. That makes me want to weep/flip a table over. Nice post.

  4. I hear this all the time! It makes me so mad! It’s even worse when test day comes and a student that’s been in class all week asks: We have a test?

    I’m like I’ve only announced it at the beginning, during, and end of each class and it’s been posted on the wall all week.

  5. Fantastic! Will repost.
