I normally don't talk too much about work on here, but this week was huge for me. The 18 tests were administered this week, each one grading me! My ability as a teacher, my professionalism, and a grade for the school. The worst part, I could not make one mark on any of the 18 tests! My students had their Fc@t this week, which is a standardized test. I was never a great test taker as a student and I'm pretty sure that I had the nerves of all 18 students. This has been a surprisingly exhausting week, even though all I do is read the scripts and walk the room for the longest hour... then do it all over again. I dislike that through all of their (and my) hard work, all that matters is one LONG test. I even read an article this week about how testing is NOT the answer. There are so many more accurate methods of measuring learning and assessing student knowledge.
