Ohio Schools Magazine is reprinting some of my comics about the PARCC Assessment in their April issue – I haven’t seen copies yet, but my colleague at school snagged one and was nice enough to send this picture to me. If you’re a teacher in the Buckeye State, be on the lookout!

Did anyone else reading this have the problem I’m talking about with the TAB¬†button? It’s not a joke, on some of the tests, if our students hit the TAB button, it was like the kill screen on Donkey Kong.

Teacher comics: PARCC fallout

Here’s what I consider to be the biggest problem about PARCC right now – the already established culture of standardized testing amongst my overly tested students. The student I was talking about had a real point about how many tests she’s been forced to take, how most teachers are diligent about trying to impress the importance of those tests to the kids… but there’s generally no fallout for them. They rarely see the results of these big business tests so it’s not real to them. It’s just something they do that mucks up their schedule a few weeks out of the year.

More on this next week, as testing continues.

After the testing, I went down and checked with the nurse. Dan had gone home because his test anxiety was so bad… and the nurse told me that she had quite a few¬†cases similar over the first week of PARCC.
