a parent stopped me in the hallway today and asked me what was going on with all the testing in the school. as i tried to explain that we're currently giving the state tests to the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, county assessments to k-5th, along with our school based literacy collaborative assessments, i may or may not have said, "basically, we test anything that moves."
oops. luckily his english wasn't very good. "que?" he asked.
never mind. just... we can't talk in the hallways.
it was a long, long week.
