We are past the TAKS test, and the kids passed.
Both Ada and Ben had to take the reading TAKS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) test this year. Children in certain grades have to take the test of a certain subject and pass it in order to pass onto the next grade level. However, it's not a normal test. There are all kinds of "tricks" built in to test thinking skills as well. Ben got stuck on one of these trick questions during his practice test and did not finish, and therefore did not pass. They took the real test a few weeks ago and we got the results today and both the kids did GREAT! I'm so proud of them.
