I think that scientists found a Wednesday as the best day for doing tests.
I am wondering how to get past this. I currently work on a Reservation and have difficulty motivating students in specific content areas as they seem to become easily distracted when it is of no importance to them or their family.I understand the community is not in aggreance with the curriculum we use for the most part, however, nothing has changed and our jobs are threatened if not using it. We've also been told if a 10% increase in test scores is not shown at the end of the year, we are up for termination. What if the kids are not upholding their half and the curriculum does not match their needs? I'm with you, their progress is not shown on those tests and values are not held on the cultural end of the "stick". They are loosing it and it makes me sad to think how true this is. Currently only 100 known members speak the language fluently-sad huh?
I was scanning the web, looking for research on the best days of the week to administer tests. Any help?
