Must be the end of the quarter as the temperature is rising literally and figuratively! 🙂
Here are some modifications to the Open Ended Assessment Plan so that we can all get them done and stay sane in the process.
1st and 2nd grade will do their assessments on paper. Natalie will copy those assessment for you ASAP.
3rd through 6th will do their assessments in the lab and I will schedule lab time for each grade level so that each class has between 1.5 to 2 hours blocked off to make sure every student has time to finish in one sitting, which is highly preferred. (don’t do multiple sittings without talking to me first)
Also, I suggest that you have the students read and annotate the texts in class before heading to the lab to answer the questions. With that in mind, based on talking to a few of you this morning I will block off time for grade levels as follows:
5th Grade – Feb 26-Mar 1 – since at least some of you want this info for report cards
4th Grade – after March 5th Writing (March 6-8)
3rd and 6th – Please indicate 2-3 days in the comments below where you would prefer to take this assessment and I’ll create a schedule in the lab for your assessments.
Questions are welcome in the comments section. Thanks for your flexibility in getting this and all the other quarterly assessments done.
