State & Standardized Tests
Today is a very special day for me. It’s my 10th anniversary as a parent! Yes, today is my son’s 10th birthday.
If you are from a private, charter, or magnet school and have to recruit students, this is the time of year that the pressure cooker heats up! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could easily differentiate yourself from your competition with a simple approach that improves student performance and makes families really happy, while reducing your stress level?
Many schools are using SOAR Study Skills for RTI!
The following is an e-mail we received from a frustrated educator:
Happy post-holiday season! Or, for those of us in the midwest and northeast, it’s the holiday season that won’t end! Schools have been called off in our town, just north of Detroit, for six consecutive days due to weather.
But, I want to share something that stretches a-l-l-l-l-l-l the way back to the eve of Christmas Eve…
Two weeks ago, we published an article about learning vocabulary words (available here). It was my answer to a question from Jean, a concerned parent whose son was struggling with an on-going vocabulary testing situation.
Immediately after we published that article, we received a response from Larry M. Here’s what Larry had to say:
Yesterday, PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) released their latest results. The news for United States is grim. The PISA system allows countries to compare learning outcomes of students as they reach the end of compulsory schooling (age 15).
PISA’s objective is to determine students’ readiness for real-world challenges. Specifically, PISA assesses the application of math, science, and language knowledge to problems and contexts of modern life. 65 countries now participate in this assessment program. The United States ranked near the bottom of all industrialized countries.
I wish these books were available when I was a sixth grader! I think they are great.Ryan D.
