Hi everyone I am new to this website, I am a teacher with a private residential center in North carolina. I teach children who are severe/profound mutihandicapped. My concern is the state texting for my students. we just went through benchmarks and writting test, that were unbelievable. Of the students that have to be texted on extend 1 only 1 of them have the slightest chance to get any answers correct, all of them are visionally impaired, and some of them have hearing loss, limited movements and 1 can only turn his head from side to side. 2 years agao when the state started this type og testng I spent 10 hour adapting materials and my students still were not successful. it gets very frustrating as a teacher to not be able to show that my students are learning because of the current testing material. Are there any other teachers on this website that are feeling the same way? Just saying Thansk for listening
