Guess what I did today!?! I took MCAS!
For all of my non-massachusetts readers, MCAS is the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System. This means that we have to take an extremely long and boring series of standardized tests every year. The tests are taken by students grade 3-11 in the subjects ELA (english language arts--reading), Math, Science, and Long Composition. Thank you.
It was a very interesting day (not!) and we ended up only having 3 blocks of actual school!
