Do you have a standardized test question that is developmentally inappropriate? If you aren’t sure what I mean by that, watch this little video of a little girl who just can’t master such easy math concepts. What’s wrong with her?
Indiana ISTEP for 3rd grade, 2011:
I probably had to write a thank-you letter when I was 8 years old, but I doubt I ever had to write an invitation. Why would a third-grader know these conventions (which by the way are as obsolete as sending a telegram)? And now that I look at it, I have NO IDEA which answer they are looking for. I thought it was “B” – but now I see there is no mention of a lake in the rest of the letter. So maybe I put this question in the wrong category. Please advise.
