We are doing boatloads of assessments right now - poor kids. The test I was administering is called DIBELS. Each child reads a passage for 1 minute while the teacher marks any mistakes they make in their reading.
As my students were reading, they would pause after a time until I encouraged them to keep reading. Their score is calculated based on the number of words they read. Finally it dawned on me that they were pausing because they thought the bell at the next table was their own.
Please tell me I am not the only one who does this!
