Most of the Benchmark scores are in (except for make-up testing). We spent some time this week in math class looking at our scores and analyzing the data. Each student should have completed an item analysis sheet that helps them see strengths and weaknesses on the different types of math questions. I also conferenced individually with each student to discuss their benchmark scores and compare it to how they have performed in the past. Please ask your student at home about their benchmark score and how it compared with their past performance in math. I think it is worthwhile to analyze and reflect on these things to gauge whether the students are on the right track or need to make some changes before the end of the year.
