Re: Assessing Literacy Skills

I was pleased to see that the rubric that Beth is using is very similar to
mine. I've included a link to a copy of last year's exemption test, on which
the first page lists all the things I'd like the students to know (not that
I'll be able to test them on every single item).

You can find it at:

I've learned a lot from some very common mistakes that students made that
there were some things that needed to be rephrased for the next edition. But
as I also said, this is a very cumbersome test to give to 70 8th-graders and
then have processed in time to see whether or not they need to take the
Upper School course.

The fact that I'm open-minded doesn't mean that I have to agree with you.
