My daughter is in the third grade. She spent three days last week taking the state reading assessments. Next week she will spend three days taking the math version.
This morning, she made the comment that there sure was a lot of testing going on in the school lately. I said, yes, it's that time of year. Her concern was "my class hasn't had the laptops in forever." I reminded her that she took her tests on the laptops last week.
"Well, it doesn't count if it isn't learning."
