Motivating students to remember all the standards
The district I teach in operates on a standards-based grading system. All work is considered practice and does not directly factor into grades, except summative assessments. Summative assessments should directly relate to one or more standards. If each test directly relates to a specific standard, what are some ways to motivate students to remember all the standards all year, other than testing every standard every week?

Perhaps you could have students create an interactive notebook with one standard listed per page. As each standard is covered, you could have students add desired information. This could include pictures, graphic organizers, or thinking webs. At the end of the school year, students will have a notebook with each standard and an explanation.

Standards are simply the verbs of what the students should know and be able to do. Perhaps try having students record an "I Can" Statement as an entry in their subject journal. This seems to work well with my fourth grade students. I use this with my students for each core subject area. I use it as an affirmation statement when introducing a standard and the expectation. Also, it breaks down standards in terms in which students understand. Students need to know what and why they are learning a particular concept or skill. By using an "I Can" statement, the student learns how best to become a stakeholder in their own education

I would incorporate simple warm-ups as reviews to previous standards.

Most schools require their students to do daily reflections. Have students reflect on what they learned, using the standards. Have them highlight or underline these standards and even draw a diagram and use vocabulary to reinforce the standard. Students can look back on what they learned and when.

Project the standard and allow them to rewrite it in their own words. Give prizes for those that memorize the newly worded standard and pair them up to teach each other. Post the newly worded standards around the room for them to use as a quick reference.

AS an intern, I have had college progressors use Kahoot and Jeopardy as a review game for an upcoming test. The review games were successful and fun. Periodically use games like these to review standards. You can warn students of upcoming game days and have them review standards. You could motivate students to study by giving extra credit points to the team that wins.
