RE: [IPp] testing in the classroom



Karen,
Z has been testing in class since dx before 3rd grade. The reasoning, was
convenience, not missing class, and safety. Not only would she miss class,
but another classmate would as well, because we don't want her wandering the
halls by herself if she's low. And we don't want her to skip testing because
it's a hassle to go to the clinic.
If your child is old enough to test him/herself, then they should be testing
whenever and wherever is convenient and they feel comfortable. Some kids
like the clinic, it's private. Z likes the idea of the whole class knowing,
so there is that many people keeping an eye on her.

Subject: [IPp] testing in the classroom

We are starting on next year's 504, and I was just wondering how many
kids are testing in the classroom, and at what age they stared testing in
the classroom.
Thanks
Karen
