Maybe this teacher isn't comfortable teaching teachers. There is a big difference teaching your peers even if they aren't from your school.

Yes, she could be cheating on the test! Perhaps she changes answers, or assists kids on the test. This would be hard to prove, but believe me, it has been done before. It is both unprofessional and unethical to do these types of things, but with the high stakes testing we all encounter now, it does happen. My theory is, "Give'm enough rope and they will eventually hang themselves!"

As far as boosting test scores, use your state standards and resources, incorportate technology ( drill & kill can be fun on these sites), and most importantly, teach your kids how to eliminate answers and take tests.

Good LucK!
