“This is only a test. It’s not a measure of your value as a human being, or for that matter, of a student.”
I repeat this before every test. I repeat this when I return tests.
And, as I was grading yesterday, I found myself repeating a modified version over and over again.
It is only a test. It does not reflect on your value as a human being or a teacher.
Being a teacher and not taking it personally: that’s a test in and of itself.
