Surveyed, interviewed, and observed fourth grade New Jersey math and science teachers regarding test preparation activities. Test preparation consisted of a mix of more and less intellectually challenging activities. There was more direct instruction in lower socioeconomic districts, but not less inquiry-oriented instruction. Principal support had more influence on test preparation strategies than did pressure to comply. (Contains references.) (SM)
