    I just gave it to my 5th graders over the last two days. I obviously did my best to prepare them, but I'm not sure how ready they were. They didn't seem to think it was too difficult (not sure if that is a good thing or not).

    As a first year teacher giving a test that is brand new, I have no idea what to expect when the results come in!

    Because Ohio has a 3rd grade reading guarantee, we gave it in early December and will give it again the week after this.
    The practice test (the released one, not what was given in Dec) was very difficult for comprehension, so we are hoping the real test will be more realistic.
    We should be good for reading, but the multi-paragraph essay is over the heads of too many of our kids.

    My students all said it was much easier than the PARCC last year. They all said they enjoyed the writing prompt on the AIR. I was pleased with this, but who knows how they did...
