Not kidding. My evaluation depends on it. I am so frustrated. I do challenge my students and hold them to high standards, but I find this completely unreasonable. If they are not able to answer these questions, I do not get renewed for next year. I think it is wrong. I think it is unfair.

"Ready" to me means they are prepared to take the test, not necessarily ace it. If I recall (and my grade level doesn't test anymore) there are questions that are for the higher level thinkers.

Don't panic until the time comes.

I feel that maybe your p. wants you to make sure that the students are prepared. Don't panic until after the test is over. Your students might surprise you with exactly what they can do. If he doesn't renew you for next year, then you are better than that school deserves. I will be his and the schools loss.

Hmmm. Isn't evaluation criteria set by your district? Test scores may play a part; they do in my state, but they are only part of the overall evaluation model. Are you a union member? You may want to give them a call.

That being said, our third graders start their state testing today! Our teachers have to attempt to teach all third grade standards by March.
