A few words about AR Testing
AR research showed that percent correct on AR Reading Practice quizzes is more important to student reading achievement than the amount of reading or book level. i.e. careful thoughtful reading
At all ability levels, students experience greater gains in reading achievement as percent increases.
Our research also shows that those students who gain the most in reading ability have an even higher average than 85%, mostly 100%.
A perfect score not only signifies that a student understands the key points of the book, it also motivates a student to read more.
Our message is a positive one, they can achieve these goals.

of children, we had some of the clearest findings I’ve ever seen:
Praising children’s intelligence harms their motivation and it harms their performance.
How can that be? Don’t children love to be praised? Yes, children love praise. And they especially love to be praised for their intelligence and talent. It really does give them a boost, a special glow—but only for the moment. The minute they hit a snag, their confidence goes out the window and their motivation hits rock bottom.
If success means they’re smart, then failure means they’re dumb.
That’s the fixed mindset.”

Occasional Social Studies Homework
Praise EFFORT, PERSISTENCE and STRATEGIES,
Instead of saying "You're so smart", say:
"You found a great way to do that."
"Way to stick with it until you finally got it."
"I can see you've been practicing."
"That was a tough problem. How did you figure it out?"
