Alicia McIntire joins us as we kick off the month to discuss the various modes of testing offered in schools. We discuss everything from how a GPA is calculated from competency based scores to computer adaptive testing what we can learn from tests like the ACT and SAT.

We also discuss how to decipher all the terms the districts and states use to describe our children’s test score.

There is also an added bonus! Alicia shares her preliminary Ph.D. research findings. In the state of Utah, students are required to take a technical/vocational class as a graduation requirement. This allows students to understand the opportunities available in the technical field. She shares the how these classes affect high school graduation rates.
