CERT Mock ACT Scores
Inside the CERT program, the Exam Room tab allows students to go back and look specifically at their responses along with a video explanation of the question and how to answer each one correctly. Students just need to click on the % in order to begin reviewing the questions. They can use the Feedback column to mark the question with a check (if they would get this correct the next time they see a similar question) or an x (if they still feel they would get the question wrong). CERT will give students an adjusted feedback score after they review the questions they missed and mark the feedback column. This helps students to see that it might only take getting 4-5 more questions correct to raise their score by a point. The Study Hall tab allows students to review based on specific topics, and allows them to see which questions relate to that specific topic.
As we approach March 21st, please think about how you would like to incorporate CERT into your classroom. If you would like to monitor their use inside the program and give them a grade or bonus points based on the percentage of review that has been completed, there are reports that can be run.

PBIS Self-Assessment Survey (SAS)-Due Friday, February 3rd
Below is a link to our school's Self-Assessment Survey (SAS) that is mandated through our PBIS program. Please take 10-15 minutes to mindfully fill out this survey. It is entirely anonymous. Our school's PBIS committee takes the time to implement changes to our yearly action plan based on the results of this survey. Parent-teacher conferences and/or our work day Friday would be great times to take this, so I will send out friendly reminders on both of those days! The survey is due by Friday, February 3rd. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call me. Thanks in advance for your time!
