Friday we will test, a test to measure teacher effectiveness that will be used to demonstrate student growth. Sounds good, right? Except for the fact that there goes Friday. Thursday will be gone as well, since we will be doing test prep only indirectly related to what we are teaching. PARCC starts next week. That will suck up most of next week. MAP testing is coming up, as well as AIMSWEB testing. We also have some semi-random tests from the company assisting the state in efforts to improve our school. After a few of “normal” weeks, the testing dragon has come roaring out of its cave again. I’ll be recording more numbers in the near future.

Eduhonesty: I enjoyed having a few of calm, normal weeks in which to indulge in a little actual teaching.
