"Science: reading for information, analyzing charts, coming to scientific conclusions. Math - practice, geometry, algebra, etc. Sent home - extra math worksheets, especially in geometry."
"The students and I went over the basics of the placement test in order for me to get a sense of where they were at with the test and to give them an idea of what the test would be like. Both boys seem to be in similar places in terms of the test, but the first student seemed a little more adept than the second student with the math and English portions of the test. The second student's intuition with math seems strong though - at one point he was able to guess the answer to a system of simultaneous by using logic, which is a very useful skill to have with this test. Both boys struggled with the harder math questions. I will be able to make a more detailed assessment once both boys have taken the practice test, which I assigned them to do before our meeting next week. For now, it seems clear to me that our primary emphases will be on the math and science sections of the test, as these are the ones that both boys seemed to have the most difficulty with."
"The student and I worked on all four sections today. I do see improvement in her math section. She has some homework for the next week. Good job!"
