    "This seems like it might be helpful, but in light of the rigor on Texas', and most other state's standards, these suggestions are behind the times, inaccurate, and potentially counterproductive. I urge educators to teach metacognition skills/strategies if they want to help students with standardized tests. "

    "If the story was a fictional story, the dog could have cooked eggs and read a book. His "stupid answers" would depend on the reading passage. Was the only answer "was tired"? No, he could have been angry that he had to stop playing and leave the park. I agree the skills discussed are good test taking tips. But stating that there are obvious "stupid" or "wrong" answers without having read the passage could be misleading. Just because an answer is "stupid" in real life, doesn't mean it can't be the answer for a story a child is reading. I teach my students to 1. read the questions 2. carefully read the story 3. eliminate unreasonable answers 4. answer the question. Step #2 is the most important step. "
