Bowling Green's school board got a crash course in the upcoming state-mandated tests for students.
Todd Cramer, executive director of teaching and learning, on Tuesday ran through all the tests students third grade to senior year will take starting next school year.
The requirements are part of the new Common Core standards, which sets a uniform benchmarks for reading, writing and math.
Cramer went through the 2014-15 testing schedule, pointing out tests will last a minimum of 45 minutes and a maximum of 105 minutes.

"It really seems nearly impossible" to get all the required testing done in a year, said Superintendent Ann McVey.
