LEGO Education preschool tests: First time students take their first math test
The first time students took their first homework test, it was not as simple as reading a test.
Instead, the new tests will require students to use a computer-based version of math to fill out their answers, something that was not required for the tests used in previous years.
The new test was developed by the company behind the popular video game LEGO Dimensions.
It will also have a much larger number of questions, from four to 12, than previous tests.
“We are pleased that parents have been encouraged to participate in the first ever LEGO Education standardized math test,” said Andrew Gaffney, the company’s chief product officer.
Students who have been enrolled in a program that includes the test, called the Educational Testing Service (ETS), will receive a $25 gift card to use at the store.
There is also a $15 “pre-order” discount available for the first 100,000 parents who sign up.
ETs first tests are due on Friday.
In addition to testing, the tests are expected to help boost educational opportunities for parents and students, as well as boost the economy by allowing them to get more work done.
Some parents have already expressed concerns about the new testing, given the fact that it is the first of its kind, with no standardized tests for students.
At the end of last year, the Education Department approved a new standardized test, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which required a score of at least 800 on a math section and a score from at least 850 on a reading section.
But parents and teachers complained that the tests were too difficult and had no standardized content.
They also complained that some of the new math tests were just as hard as the old tests.
Some parents, who have enrolled in ETS programs, say they feel they have been pushed into an inferior role with the new standardized tests.
They have asked the Education Secretary to investigate and recommend ways to improve the exams, including an option for students to retake them, but it is unclear if that will happen.
A new testing system, the Educational Assessment of Learning (EAL), also is expected to be approved this week, according to a report from the Education Writers Association.
EAL is expected be the next step in the standardized testing process.
Its aim is to give students the tools to better prepare them for the workforce and higher education.
