Choose the standards that kids still struggle with and design engaging lessons to give them practice so they can meet end of the year standards before the year is over. It's important to focus on your standards/objectives throughout the year regardless of the presence of testing, but we all know it's important that kids at least get exposure to all relevant content before the test. Once the test is over, you have time for mastery of standards that your kids struggled with. I always shared all standards with the kids and asked them what they still needed help with. I recently saw this done in a third grade classroom, and when looking at the standards, they were really vocal about which ones they didn't know. (:
