The test score on the Stanford Achievement test, given at the end of the Summer FCAT READING CAMP goes as follows:
To pass the test, a score of 51% was required.
My daughter, who was so stressed from the program that she developed Acute Bronchitis, and spiked a 102 degree fever that day scored:
22%.
They said that while it did show that she did gain learning experience from the summer program, she still did not pass the test.
DUH!   
We all knew it wouldn't happen. It is ludicrous to make these children go through this kind of torture when what they need is a nice quiet atmoshere to learn in, and a continual learning process. They don't need the frantic "shove it down your throat style" of learning fostered by these tests. No one can retain anything they learn in that way, without some kind of backup system of giving information, on a regular basis like in a class room setting. I am not surprised by this result.
