There are no words to describe

the fear you feel

when your brightest child

looks at the test

and says

“Well either of these answers would work…”

On a question

where the other choices

are ridiculous

and obviously wrong.

  1. I am sure that was not a fun thing to overhear! However, we need not fear this. Tests are snapshots, a moment in time for our students. Not something I would sweat!


  2. I feel you in this fear—with the level of high stakes testing with SO much at stake—particularly in schools already struggling due to scores. Ugh. I hate it.
