The first year our school gave the Global Regents we had an 11% passing rate.

Last year we had a 16% passing rate.

We just got done grading our tests for this year, and we ended up with about 60% passing.

It’s pretty good, and I’m very proud of my students, who worked very hard. A bunch of kids who killed themselves studying only got a 55, but that’s enough to graduate. One student was in the hospital the day of the test; she got dispensation to take it there, and got an 87!

I wish it had been 100% passing,  of course. The number includes several students who are severely special ed (as in, they don’t know the entire alphabet) and lots of kids who’ve only been speaking English for a couple of years. So good job, students! If you got all the way through that test, you earned it.

    These kids had you for two years, right? (at least one, but I think you mentioned two in an earlier post). They were fortunate to have you.

  2. Yeah, these are the kids I looped with. I’ve gotten a bunch of thank-you emails, which are really sweet, because I feel a little bit sad that more of them didn’t pass.
