Stories from an eighth grade Language Arts classroom.
Our graduation test (GHSGT) can be taken 5 times, more I guess if you repeat 11th or 12th.
Our high school proficiency exams are like that here in Nevada. I think it's 5 times, too. A couple of them are taken for the first time at the end of their sophomore years, and the rest during their junior years. I work with a group of students who have their credits and are only trying to pass their exams. You've never seen such serious students...(for most of them, it's the first time for that!)
I want ALL the state tests to be like that. Every year our kids spend between 9 and 12 1/2 hours on testing. I want 4 hours and done, and then for the kids who are unhappy with how they did (because some of them sometimes are), I want the options for retakes. Also, results within a month, not this 4 months later crap.
