I'm leaving to go back home for Easter at like negative 4 o'clock tomorrow, so I have to post quickly. However, I defo have something to post.
Today one of my AP Statistics students had the following question:
"Why are we working so hard to prepare for this AP test? I don't even care about this test, I just want to learn."
Breaks my heart. Obviously, the AP test is a very important test, in that it determines whether or not the kids get college credit for the class. The worst part is that I spend the rest of my day working with 10th graders trying to get them to be functional enough to pass the DC-CAS. And those kids don't even realize that they're being denied real education in an effort to raise their "test scores." As an apologist for standardized tests, I have to say: this is not what testing was supposed to be about. Yech.
