  Case: Math or Reading
A second grade student is a struggling reader, but can complete math facts and problems excellently. When given the formative math assessment, the student failed. He had to read the word problems and he didn't know the words. Should the student be penalized for not knowing the math vocabulary? Or should the teacher read the test to him?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
I feel that the teacher should read to the student and work with them, especially knowing they are capable of doing the work. The student may need other interventions to improve their reading comprehension.
The suggested solution is respectful of the individual (student) Yes
The suggested solution is relevant to the case Yes
The suggested solution is reasonable (easy) for the teacher to implement Yes
The suggested solution is likely to solve the problem/issue Yes
The suggested solution is original Yes
Comments: I agree with you on this, the student shouldn't be penalized for his reading on a math test.
