We have been hard at work wrapping up loose ends in ELA 10 last week, and we will continue that this week. If you have been watching MiStar, you’ll notice that in addition to all the practice assignments, some of the final (counted) assessments for the unit have now been entered. Students have received scores for assessments measuring the following three learning goals:
There are the two remaining learning goals for the unit:
I hope this breakdown helps you understand where your student stands with his or her grade at this point in the card marking. On Monday this week, I’ll be giving the students printouts of their current grades along with some reflection questions that ask them to think about how well they’ve engaged with the practice activities this unit. For many students, I have been happy to see them embracing the formative, practice assessment even though they don’t “count”. Now that we are getting to the scored assessments, those students are very happy with their results. Some students have struggled with pushing themselves to engage in practice and they are less pleased with their scores right now. I’m hopeful that reflecting on the effort they’ve put forth will help them set some goals for the remainder of the unit and the year.
I’m off to go fill some Easter baskets! I hope you have a wonderful Easter if you celebrate it this weekend!
