I am beginning to realize that I really really hate cell=phones.
People are so busy watching life on the little screen as they take pictures and video what is going on around them that they have lost the ability to just experience life as it happens and take the memories as memories.
OK, we give a pretest in the fall and then the same test in the fall and the difference in scores shows what the student learned. We are to aim for a 30 percent increase EXCEPT that it is measured in what I consider an odd way. To my way of thinking, if Amy earned a 30 on the pretest and a 40 on the test, she has achieved a 30% growth.
If she earned a 30 on the pretest, that leaves 70 to make a 100. 30% of 70 is 21, so Amy would need to earn a 51 (30 + 21) to achieve a 30% growth.
Obviously, the higher your initial score, the less you have to make on the post test for growth, so this is scewed against the low achievers.
