The Mom: “So today is picture day and NWEA testing*”
The 10 y.o.: “Yeah, we’ve been doing NWEA all week. I scored 245 on the Reading test yesterday. The last question was a bit tricky. It asked about the etymology of the word “Light”. Then I remembered the Lumos spell that lights up Harry Potter’s wand comes from “Lumen”, which is obviously Latin…”
*An NWEA score of 245 is the 99th percentile for the last quarter of 6th grade. M is in the first quarter of 5th grade.
