Skipping the Foundation Skills Assessment Test has caught on even more this year, with parents deciding in droves to shut down the test.

Only six of Palsson Elementary School’s 30 Grade 4 students wrote the test this month.

The results will be released next year.

As reported in last week’s Gazette, taken from February 2010 results, 42.8 per cent of Palsson Elementary School students did not write the test in 2010, up from 21.6 per cent the previous year.
