April 4, 2007 at 11:20 PMIt's test time in Georgia-here it is called the CRCT. In our district, the test is spread out over 6 days-2 hours per day. I get to assist by proctoring. It's oh so exciting. I get to help the classroom teacher make sure students (third graders) are filling in their bubbled answer sheets and not trying to redo sections already completed. So far each section is 60 minutes. It's absolutely mind numbingly zombifyingly boring. Proctors are not allowed to sit, and students are confined to the room for 2 hours. That includes the girl with pinkeye. The earth quits rotating for this test (thanks W). My classes don't get to meet, and then this is followed by break. And while break is needed, it means some of my students won't have strings class for 2 weeks. Nothing like stopping the learning process to prove your students have learned something.
