Thank you, code.org, for changing questions 5 and 10 on the assessment. Question 5 took out the requirement for a student to know how to convert to Hex. Question 10 is rewritten in a context of an activity the students worked with in Unit 1.
I still have concerns about two questions on the test.
Question 4 still references Hex and up to this point in the lessons, there is no solid practice with the Hex numbering system. I know at some point we will cover Hex in more detail, just not up to this point in the curriculum.
Question 7 on bandwidth and latency. The only place this is presented in the curriculum is as vocabulary words. Even in the teacher notes it is not stressed. I had to throw out Question 7 last year and I threw it out again this year.
Thank for a great curriculum and for giving teachers that have their “boots on the ground” the opportunity to share our experience!
