One thing many grade-level teams at my school does is have the students practice writing in a "simulated" testing environment. 3-4 times a year, the departmentalized grade levels modify the schedule so that the students stay with one teacher for half the day. During that time, they are given a practice test prompt, and must complete with rough draft, editing, and final copy. They are not allowed to work together or to get help on anything from the teacher, just like the state test. This helps students get used to the testing situation and build up their tolerance to a long writing test. The tests are also used for writing grades.
