Offering incentives and fun days help with motivation for students do the best for constant assessments. With testing taking away from instructional days, the fun days need to be productive in instruction for the standards.

Mrs. Conley should make sure that her bias against the tests doesn't filter down to the kids. If they know you don't like it they will be less inclined to want to do their best.

Focus on the instruction given and student motivation to learn! Allow times in your classroom for movement and active engagement. It is possibly the the students are tired of sitting in class all day long and feel sad. They probably don't want to take tests after sitting in class. So, allowing them time for indoor recess or outdoor play time after assessments is a good way of allowing them to still be kids.
