"There are so many variables to this big bad boy. If the FSA really were a boy, I wouldn't want my daughter dating this insecure and pompous bastard!  The cruel SOB with his capricious power surges just makes more work for me.  Oh, there he sits in his high and mighty Tallahassee finery!  Gloating!"

Inside the "testing arena...".

 I HATE seeing raised hands and expectant faces!  (Eighth grade reading--timed). A student just got bumped out.  My heart's pounding.  I DO NOT WANT TO TOUCH ANYTHING! She had to sign in again.  And I had to approve her again, while everyone else waited.  Three computers, after having the FSA secure screen "ready to go" wouldn't work.  Our WiFi was "in the yellow?" Quickly moved those children to a different lab.

This "dance" is coordinated by our assistant principal.  I complimented him today on his positive attitude.  It's quite a feat--like a Broadway play.  Enter stage left!!! He's the director.  I'm just a stage hand, "pulling curtains open..." Turning on computers, creating testing session IDs. 

Yea!  She's IN!  She's IN!  She's IN!  

"This is really loud" she says as she checks the sound.  I can hear it from here.  How to lower it?  Is it disturbing...?

"Miss, How do I go to the next passage?"

WEREN'T THESE KIDS TRAINED?!

I am reading every word of this script EVERY TIME DAMMIT!  Sometimes I read in a loud and brash way.  Sometimes I have a British or Southern accent.  Sometimes I am quiet and subdued.  

Thoughts about data mining...maybe a camera is secretly watching children and me. Do "they" see one is sleeping?  

Students cannot submit tests until 85 minutes have passes.  WHY?  More smoke and mirrors. Does the state believe that kids are actually and actively using every minute?!  What nonsense!

Almost all done....restlessness started awhile ago....

Session 2 FSA ELA reading 8th grade.  Before students arrived we had a power surge.  There are so many variables to this big bad boy!  If the FSA really were a boy, I wouldn't want my daughter dating this insecure and pompous bastard!  The cruel SOB with his capricious power surges just makes more work for me.  Oh there he sits in his high and mighty Tallahassee finery!  Gloating!

Hey!  These are called TESTS! Yes!  They are not assessments!  "Students in your operational test session."  "Select tests". So why aren't they called Florida Standards Tests?

Less than half way through.  Three students done!  Could it be they want to sleep?  Could it be they know they are BEING USED?! Nahhhh....

It's 1320 and we don't finish until 1410.  EGAD!  BOREDOM!
