Is District 95 feeding the students answers to the standardized tests?

As some of you might have noticed, our local k-8 school district here in Carbondale has seen some remarkable improvement in test scores over the last few years. I have been told by a couple of people lately that they are reading the test out loud to the students the day before it is given, then the teacher talks over the answers. That would certainly explain the improvement, I don't think the test is any easier or the bad students are getting any better.

Anyone have a line on this rumor?
