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. https://www.isbe.net/Documents/Assessment-Guidance-2020-21.pdf

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

I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?

Any ideas that people have on how to network/break into circles of tech startups? Long story short, joined a tech Fortune 500 company a little over a year ago as an entry level analyst and things have gone downhill with COVID (limited growth here but got exposure). Looking to start new with a startup as I grew tired of the ethics of a larger corp. I have no network as it stands in tech startups, don't come from a target school (although I graduated with honors) and at a loss of where to start.
