The scores are in...

My kids, sadly, didn't do as well as I had hoped for.

Then again, neither did the entire 5th grade. To show a year's worth of growth, a student has to go up a certain number of points from last year to this year (say, 150. It varies depending on the subject and grade). The average growth in, as an example, 5th grade reading, was +9. Yes, nine. (Again, this is for our grade as a whole.) Well, judging by THAT, my students did well. Twenty of my 25 kids did better than the grade-wide average. * However, of those kids, only 6 or so showed the amount of growth they SHOULD have for an academic year. In other words...my kids went up--but maybe not enough. Ugh.

*Math was worse for my kids. Only 10 did better than the 5th grade average.

You have to know, you are an amazing teacher! You teach kids at all different learning levels, you are passionate and they trust and adore you, plus, when kids take tests sometimes nerves can get to them. It would be interesting to see if you had given them a "pop" fun quiz compared to these types of schoolwide tests. Be proud of where they did well in. I am proud of you!
