Testing

It's that time of year...
getting the students ready for CA STAR Test.

As teachers, we've done pretty much everything in our control...
it's now up to the students to give it their all,
to demonstrate how much they've learned this year!

*unfortunately, it feels that it's all about raising those scores!
where's the joy of learning?!
yes, i know...accountability matters.

If only the test really showed what they learned during the year. My students who came in not knowing sounds and letters but are currently working at an end of 1st grade level have learned quite a lot. Sadly, that won't help them for the 2nd grade test!!!

give them all As and tell them it doesn't really mean anything other than what they really learned.
