Testing as a Genre

Big image
Dr. Sommerall came to visit us last Monday and Tuesday to support our growth as test makers. We spent time thinking about tests that exists in the real world...sports tryouts, recitals, job applications...all high stakes tests. We realized that test makers are not our friends. Their job is to see if we can get the answer correct. We will continue our testing as a genre study throughout the year.
