STAAR testing and dancing

Just in from one of the sites where Dance of the Continents was performed in 2014:

“8th grade students are taking the science benchmark today, which is the state released staar test from last year.  Just saw a student (very lively and dramatic student) making the “divergent/convergent/transform” hand motions while testing.  She then proceeding to move shoulders and mouth out words to herself (singing to herself) as she continued testing.”
