Rookie Year: Day 55

Today I gave a unit test and then had my students practice old skills on IXL if they finished early.

More of them finished early than I would have liked because they did not take the test seriously and just blazed through it in about 25 minutes instead of the allotted 60. I’m kinda frustrated with this because I don’t know how to get through to them that they need to study for tests and then actually try when they are taking them. I don’t think it’s real to them that if they fail my class they have to take it over again. Argh. I don’t know.

On the bright side I also had the most passing scores on this test than I have had previously, so I think it is clicking for some of my students and not all of them. I am still trying to figure out how to close the gap.

Thanks for reading.
