I took the Principal Certification exam last week and passed on my first attempt. I completely understand how students may feel while taking a standardized exam. I found myself daydreaming, having flashbacks, feeling my back / neck muscles tighten, and getting annoyed about the length of the exam. At one point, I honestly had a moment where I wanted to quit due to the length of the exam; however, the thought of having to go through such a tortuous process again snapped me back to reality. If this is how an adult with years of test-taking skills and strategies under his belt reacted to such an exam, then I can only imagine how our students must feel when they are taking multiple exams.
