Reading the Script

Hi Readers

Did you know that the most important part of my job is to administer the 'End of Grade Tests'? There's regular EOGs, then there is Extend 2 (watered down EOGs), then there is Extend 1 (for kids who really can't do academics), then there is the retests of all three.  It takes at least a month.  I'm in the middle of it now, and it's all an exercise in reading a script. (Do you really need a Masters degree to do this?)  I'm testing a kid in a one-on-one (actually two adults on one if you include the proctor) setting this week, and so far, he's been a compliant participant.  So.....all is good.  Last year, I wrote a haiku about testing.  This year........EOGs drain the life out of creativity and of me.  I can't wait until it's over.
