MAP testing - please read and understand
Second... I will try to explain this again how it works. We can have a limitless number of students taking a variety of tests on the same session, but se can only have one testing session open at a time. So, only the kids who are in a particular named session can log on to finish a test at the same time. For example, let's say the test is named kitty1234 and that we have K5, 4th and middle school students all testing at the same time in various places and on different tests. Let's say that we have 2 students from each class that didn't finish the test. Those students can then finish their tests at the same time as we just restart the test.
Having said this, it is critically important for every teacher to identify every student who either missed a test or did not finish a test. We asked you to put the info on the spread sheet and some of you did and some of you did not. There is no acceptable reason for me to find that we have a student without a test score at the end of this session. Every teacher needs to do what is necessary to follow through completely on this task. Homeroom teachers have one class to focus on, we have about 340 students who are testing.
Thank you for giving this the importance it deserves.
Grades and Final Report Cards
I do need confirmation of those Honor Roll and Principal's list awards for the year for next week, so I will do an upload and actually print copies of 3rd thru 8th grade report cards for teacher review only. Please double-check this against what you submitted and make the necessary changes.
3rd through 8th grade teachers....I do believe in grace, don't you? If you have a student who had one B throughout the year, I have no issue with giving the student that Principals List Award. If you have a student who had one C through the year, I have no problem with giving the student that Honor Roll award. For both, this is assuming that the one low grade was a fluke and there were not extenuating circumstances.
I will put the reports in your boxes by tomorrow.
We will be printing a preliminary Perfect Attendance list today and will be circulating that. It is your responsibility to review this and look for any issues. If you think someone is missing, let me know. If you think someone is on the list that shouldn't be, let me know. Bear in mind that we will generate this list based on the data that you have put in the computer.
Summer School and retention
Second, some of you gave very detailed information which is what I asked for, and I appreciate it. This information will be shared with the summer school teachers so that they know exactly what to focus on. Some of you gave me grades and general information. I will let you know if you need to provide more information.
