First - I swear, the vacation post is almost done - I'm still loading pictures and trying to load a video.
Second, the CSET was this morning. I registered and took the test today for one of the three subsets, Subtest III- Human Development, Art and Physical Education. There were 39 questions; 36 multi-choice and three essay. I was totally day-dreaming around question 10 - then decided to wake up and plugged through the remainder of the test.
Somewhere around question 25 I decided to see how many questions were left and went into a near panic/anxiety attack when I noticed there were a total of 39 questions. Who the hell puts 39 questions on a standardized test, I swear I do not remember this from the first time however the nice test proctor lady assured me this was Ok. I will be placing a phone call on Monday to the Testing registrar- just to double check.
Standardized tests suck, the reality is that it is a necessary evil. Honestly, I feel like I have been studying for Jeopardy. The content is completely random and alot of it will be useless to me as a teacher though one never knows when you will need to know exactly how many players are on a team for Volleyball. I did, however, KICK ASS on the essay portion so.....who knows. I walked away feeling completely comfortable - reminiscent of the very first CBEST exam of which I failed miserably.
Really, who knows?
