Eager (?) students gathered at 9:00 am sharp, armed with newly sharpened #2 pencils and extra reading materials to start the annual pilgrimage through the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. We will test today (Monday) through Wednesday from 9:00 am to noon. As always, break time for snacks seemed to be the highlight of the morning for the students.
Today we took the reading and language arts portions of the test. Tomorrow we will be taking the math portions and Wednesday will cover Social Studies, Science and Sources of Information. Thursday will be available for make up testing.
Tomorrow I will interview a couple of test takers to see what they think about this process and what they are reading during the breaks.
