"HAVE YOU GRADED OUR PAPERS YET?"
This chart shows at a glance how much time it takes a teacher to grade one set of papers. This qork usually cannot be done in class because students deserve the teacher's attention during that time. Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, middle school teachers in Kyrene have no preparation period during the school day to plan for instruction, prepare necessary materials, and grade. As of September 2020, I currently have 151 students on my roster (not including Advisory).
The average RACE response requires about 10 minutes per paper on average, while the average essay requires at least 20 minutes per paper. All in all, please be patient with me as I grade written responses.
