Tests like the SAT and FCAT put a strain on both teachers and students who worry the results could jeopardize the school's grade and monetary reward.

One teacher said it's good to measure a student's progress, but the pressures of being graded on one single test is just too much for many.

"There is no fair way to measure how far we bring a child; testing alone can't do that. A two and a half hour time, I am gonna be graded on what kind of teacher I am," said Marsha Joplin, a teacher at Leon High School.

Leon School officials said results of the Canopy Oaks investigation continues and results should be released early next week.
