A short note today, as my AP kids took the "free response" portion of a practice exam. So, I have about 150 essays staring at me from the depths of my book bag. Plenty of answers to work with for an evening.
My sophs seemed to feel okay about the testing this morning. No specifics, mind you---but they didn't think anything on there was unfair. Their primary negative comment was just that it takes a long time to do. I agree.
In the meantime, as a pseudo-follow-up to yesterday's post, here's an article from today's Seattle Times regarding just how "high stakes" WASL has gotten this year.
And now, time for me to get out the red pen and bleed on some essays.
