The BIG “S” Word

It happened to our  daughter!

The big “s” word!

Not the kind where you put a soap in your child’s mouth for using it.

It’s the STANDARDIZED TESTING!

My daughter came home asking if I will love her no matter what happens.  I answered, yes but I was wondering what she had done.   She was scheduled to take her end of the year test at school, I  had an opportunity to have a talk with my daughter’s teacher.

I guess her class was chosen for second grade standardized testing.  The test was 90 minutes long.  Kids had to take the test on the computer.  Teacher was expecting my daughter to do well because she is one of her “star” students.

We are down to last three weeks of school when this happened.  I guess all other students were able to cheat the computer but my daughter couldn’t.  It kept voiding her answers and made her start all over.  Finally, teacher had to tell my daughter that she will be in big trouble with mom if she doesn’t do it right.  My daughter had 15 minutes to answer all the questions.  She missed the mark by 23 points.

I came home and explained about keeping focus on the work  but I couldn’t get angry with her for what she had done.   I found this cartoon which I thought explained  this situation very well.
