Thursday and Friday we are taking our second Cumulative Assessment, which is like a benchmark for the EOC. Although this test is not graded, it is corrected and the scores are reported both to the district and to your child. Doing well on the cumulative assessment is an important step to doing well on the EOC at the end of the year — and that is worth 25% of the entire grade for the year. In other words, the 4 hours spent taking the EOC are weighted more than an entire 9 weeks of work in one quarter.
I am challenging students to do better than they did on the last CA and, if possible, to get every single question correct. We’re on our way!
HW: Flash fiction rough draft (complete) due on Tuesday. Come prepared to work on it in class tomorrow!
