This update is in reference to this entry I made a few days about about a "Special Awards Ceremony" held at Evan's school. It was an award given for last year (third grade) in which he achieved academic growth of "more than 1.4 years" during the school year. As excellent as this news was, I thought it even more excellent that 40% of the school accomplished this!!
This was based on the MAT 8 (Metropolitan Achievement Test) national standardized test, so it wasn't some local testing that decided this either! Wow!
