Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?

Supposedly we’re doing IAR in the spring. We are MAP testing as well.


Senior SAT starts this week! UGH


We’re still doing maps testing.

o you know which states? as far as I know, we are still having ours. I highly doubt that standardized tests will ever completely go away... education is too politicized and funding limited. what may change is HOW tests are administered and possibly content.

Ha! I wish.

The ISBE doesn’t have a clue. Even if remote, districts need to transport students to school to take a test. Read that again.

No I don’t think COVID should be the end of testing. Testing should continue. However, I do believe we have too much testing.

Alvarez & Marsal What group travels the most at Alvarez & Marsal post COVID - NACR or PEPI? And how much?


Any keto folks following the Covid19 crisis close enough to have seen the BMI studies where the curve over 28 BMI is concerning done in March. Fast forward 2-3 months and the CDC dropped the concern from BMI 40+ to 30+ quietly last week the age-adjusted curve moves over BMI 28. Deep diving on nutritional and lipid / CVD data studies gave me confidence to read the primary studies and data. Dig In, keto up, stay safe.

My ped wasn’t very helpful and directed me to CDC website which didn’t answer my question so wondering if any mommas here have been in a similar situation.


Glad to see the bowl grew from 1 to 5. Modest, but gains nonetheless! Do elective procedures actually come back after covid-19 peaks? Clients already brainstorming how to build trust post-pandemic ..

Does it look bad if you don't go to the firm holiday party? I feel like it'll be so big no one will even miss me, and it's not mandatory, but I'm also new-ish and a junior so I don't want to look like I'm not a team player. To be honest I'm a newlywed (Nov 30th) and just want to spend every night in bed with my wife! But I obviously can't tell them that.
