Teacher’s touching note reminds students they’re worth more than their exam results

Standardized testing is a source of anxiety for many students — especially those for whom taking exams doesn’t come naturally.  One teacher took time to remind students they’re worth far more than their scores.

Students in Indiana are currently taking the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress (ISTEP), tests designed to measure instructors’ teaching abilities as well as students’ academic progress. And although the ISTEP doesn’t affect students’ actual grades, it can still be a less-than-fun experience.
