I’ve uploaded my old M/c quizzes on pdf’s and you plug in the answers , it puts it on a locked browser , you can follow the whole class while they are taking it , immediately grades, and provides data- works with google classroom as well . They have test banks for all the standards that I use them in a pinch to round out my quizzes .

We use Illuminate/Fastbridge assessments. I'm only familiar with the reading assessments. The scores are usually commensurate with their skills. (Don't waste your time with the skills to learn report. It's based on their score not disagregated data from items missed. Most of the them are identical.)
We created getting to know the aReading assessment slides to show students before taking it that help a lot. We learn about analogies and review a few skills they've "forgotten" since elementary. I can send it to you. (I'm having surgery in the morning. PM me and I'll send it to you asap.)
We also learned to use a touch screen for the progress monitoring, even if it means the kids taking turns with one touch screen. If no touch screen, then use a mouse. Track pads are too slow.

Have used for a number of years. Can do many different things depending on how you want to use it. Feel free to reach out. randy.mccoy@lok12.org

Recently got an offer to go from audit to financial analyst at a subsidiary of a public company which is what I have been wanting to switch to. The base is 5k lower than what I make now and the benefits of maternity leave is unclear. I brought up the possibility of working remotely internationally due to family but the company does not allow that. I am looking for advice on whether I should accept this offer. This is before any salary or start date negotiation.

Question, I have been basically networking the crap out of getting a job at a competing firm and it is looking like it might happen (yay!). The only problem is I thought it was going to take a while because they basically said it would (we were all thinking the second half of this year and that was iffy). Couple questions: 1) how much leverage do I have to negotiate salary / signing bonus and 2) can I negotiate parental benefits within the first year because my husband and I have started trying.

I’ve seen a couple posts lately with comments saying that people should not use a Roth 401k. Does the logic below capture the spirit of that concept?
1. Use trad. 401k to reduce taxable income now. Convert to trad. IRA once retired, then convert gradually to Roth IRA (ladder, SEPP, etc.) at lowest marginal tax rate
2. Use Roth IRA (and/or backdoor Roth) to take advantage of tax free growth and ability to withdraw principal early without penalty
