I sat through a Very Important Meeting today on how to administer The Test. We have to learn about the Big Changes from the year before. Big Changes include things like this: Last year the manual read: When finished with test, students may quietly read a book. This year it says: When finished, students may quietly read a book or rest. So you can see that there was clearly a need to assemble the staff for an hour after school to review policy. Other items on the agenda included "Do not give students answers on the test" and "Do not read test to student." It was an hour well-spent.
