While we can't control what students face at home, we need to build them up and give them love when they come through our doors ❤❤

Thank you! I’ve seen too many times where either the assessment was assessing way too much, or there was no way the student would have the necessary background knowledge to understand the text.

A5: this is huge, make sure to check the level compared to the content. Low level texts with difficult content can be more difficult than high level texts with low level content. Also make sure you’re finding questions that assess exactly what you’re looking for.

We’ve got a couple assessment programs we use, and none of them that I know of sync up with Google Classroom. I explained it to one teacher how I can have a student logged in and starting the assignment before they’d even get to the login screen for other options.

A4: Google Classroom to share it out to my students! As far as sharing with other teachers, I’m currently the only one using this in my building, so I haven’t really shared anything other than downloading the PDF (old school!)

A3: usually passage based multiple choice, as we’ve identified 6 key standards we want to focus on, and don’t want to make it overly convoluted. I am looking to add some drag and drop questions to assess Plot Line development after seeing it in one of the webchats!

It’s crazy, we’ve only had one delay so far this year. Honestly hoping it stays that way (however I will accept it probably won’t haha)

A2: I’m lucky enough to have an awesome ELA Team that I work with, as well as a fantastic co-teacher that I swear is a question writing pro! We really look at the data to, in order to make sure the questions aren’t being confused or misinterpreted.

We didn’t get too much of it. Got 4-6 inches Monday night (didn’t delay or anything). I’ve got friends in Albany who got a couple feet! 😮

A1: I get my questions either from the question bank, previously designed assessments I’m adding to Edulastic, or I create my own. Have had quite a bit of practice with that 😂

Ah the Sigma Force Series! Love those books. I found those when looking for something similar to these Jonathan Maberry books. You’d probably enjoy these books if you like the Sigma Series.

It’s called Rage by Jonathan Maberry, it’s technically the 11th book in the series. It’s about a character named Joe Ledger who is recruited into the “Department of Military Sciences” which handles international threats that are highly scientific/technologically advanced.
