I teach in a low income district. Our results were actually pretty good considering, but certainly not as good as others. To compare results and then make a decision about how good the teacher is , is ridiculous. One of my algebra teachers only had a 55% passing rate... lousy teacher right? Oh wait, she had a student with an IQ of 80 and a second grade reading level who PASSED. Amazing right? Judging each other is as useless as that exam was.
And BTW  My students would probably have done much better on a much harder exam, since that was what I was concentrating on. Phase shifts, forces, word problems, imaginary numbers, trig equations.....
I know I did a good job, and I am confident that most of you did a good job too. Stop beating yourselves up because of an exam that poorly refelcts the curriculum.  lvullo@ccsdk12.org wrote: > It must be nice to teach only kids that are totally motivated and do > everything you tell them too.
