There are so many factors that are weighing heavily on my mind as we move towards this new process. I'm worried about my students anxiety about testing, the fact that I will see them even more infrequently because our school is growing so rapidly, how to catch them up when they are absent or pulled from my room for one reason or another, and am I doing enough to prepare them for this whole new process. I know I'm probably over thinking this and a lot of what I'm feeling is anxiety about the unknown but it's something that has been in the back of my mind.
I'm curious to hear your thoughts on testing in the elementary music room. What do you see as the positives/negatives? Is standardized testing a part of your reality? How does it work in your state/county/city?
