Word problem du jour - 3.30 #sol16 Story Challenge

How much time does it take to force-feed a teacher 43 slides containing 24 links that comprise over 106 pages of proctor training materials and a seven-minute video tutorial, all aimed at administering the latest flavor of state-wide standardized tests?

A. One tense 30-minute lunch period
B. Eternity x Infinity, to the power of Purgatory
C. Barely enough to form three new gray hairs
D. All of the above

  1. If only you were still on Long Island where everybody opts out so none of it matters anyway! Ugh. Sounds just dreadful.

    1. Hm. Makes me wonder if I should comb through the materials with more care in search of the teacher opt out! Truth be told, the rationale for the tests irks me much less than what feel like ham-handed administration demands.

  2. Laughing but very very sad for you...and also for me. We will begin training for our state assessment shortly after spring break. Why? Why?!? Letter B was my favorite!

  3. I teach in a parochial school so we don't have to do all of this. Just reading this makes me thankful that we don't have to even look at that power point!

    Keep looking for that teacher opt-out...
