Are Children Being Left Behind?
During the first couple of weeks, just with this class, the average score is less than fifty percent. During the past week, the class average has reached 90%. My son is ahead in this class since we have been working on these topics before the county's online learning commenced. The first two topics are foundational work on solving quadratic equations while vertical motion is applied. This application makes use of acceleration due to gravity to setup a quadratic equation. Although encouraging, one must keep in mind that this is a very small snapshot of the current situation. Four in five students in this school are not enrolled in this class and their current situation is unknown to me. We could only hope that they have likewise caught up with the material. More than ever, we need assessments to help inform us of where our students are.
