Today we teachers gathered in the library for our annual briefing on how to conduct the High School Exit Exam. You can imagine what a treat such meetings are for all concerned. If I ever go to one where every word on every PowerPoint slide is not read to me, I'll be sure to rush home and write a blog post about it. Don't hold your breath.
California has available a workbook students can get in order to practice for this test--a test given to sophomores, which covers up to 8th grade math and up to 10th grade English, and we give out practice workbooks for it. Anyway, our district ordered the workbooks, and they're scheduled to arrive in April.
We administer the test the first week of February.
