I decided to lump these three days together into one post as the students worked on their Benchmark Assessments. These county-issued exams count for only 5% in the gradebook and serve as a way to see how the students are doing across the county. With the switch to Common Core, this Benchmark was the first one issued with Constructed Responses (BCRs or short-answer questions) and Extended Responses (longer-form essay-length responses). Since these days were pretty much the same in format, the PowerPoints below are pretty much the same as well.
