A question came up about study island. how many blue ribbons does we need to be on target. it is complicated:
log in to study island and count how many topics to be passed = 23 - 28 depending on grade and subject
calculate how many weeks until the exams = safe to say all by around 4/1/13 or 27th week of the school year if you are not sure.
now subtracting out 1 blue ribbon for each week between then and now... (we are embarking on week 8) we have 20 weeks left to finish up the difference between where you ARE and were you NEED to be.
sounds like an algebra problem?
If you have 28 topics (6th grade math) and we are in week 8 of school, you have 20 weeks left to complete your ribbons. If you have 1, you need to get to work, if you have 8, then you are in line with 1 per week as recommended, if you have something in between, pick up the pace.
6th Math: 7 blue ribbons (week 30 testing)
6th Reading: 2 blue ribbons (week 30 testing)
7th Math: 5 blue ribbons (week 31 testing)
7th Reading: 4 blue ribbons (week 31 testing)
7th Writing: 5 blue ribbons (week 28 testing)
