Not sure what to do

My DD just brought home her test grades for the week. Most were what I expected, not the best grades, we (her teacher and myself) have already agreed that repeating would be in her best interest. That being said, how can she bring home an 8% in one subject when the tests are open book and we review the material EVERYDAY. I am baffled. And now I feel like I have failed because a couple of DS grades have slipped maybe because of more of my focus being on DD, I guess.

Go on and bash its what you ladies are good at. I already know I failed.

Have you had her tested? 8% is more than just a failure to grasp content.

Age? Any issues going on in school? At home? Possible learning disabilities? Testing anxiety? Reading comprehension? (My brother could ace an oral test and fail miserably with a written one)

I'm thinking test anxiety and trouble reading. Going to discuss more of this Monday when I see her teacher again.

If that's the case, you didn't do anything. You guys just have to tweak her education.

It sucks that the teacher is waiting this long to approach you about it so you guys can figure this out.

Has there ever Bern concern with maybe she has learning disabilities? Wondering if maybe she does.
