Reporting EOC Data
Please don't tell kids it's worth a large chunk of their grade. Students have been told this is 75% of their grade, that they can fail the grade if they don't do well. Guys, we don't do that to kids. Please don't tell them that if they do poorly it will change all of their progress for the year. When we each create our own message we confuse the kids and their parents and they lose trust in us as a collective faculty.
There is one message for the EOCs: The purpose of EOCs is to measure student mastery so we as practitioners know how to adjust our instruction for the following year. It can be used as evidence to grant higher levels on the 4 point scale. It cannot be used to move kids down.
If we need to rethink our strategy next year, we will.
No Faculty Circle this week.
