10mo (almost 11mo) gos to bed between 6 and 7, wakes twice to feed (which sucks), sleeps 'til 7, naps at 9 and 1 or 2. Naps are 1-2 hours. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] On the ERB, are there some subtests that are considered particularly impressive if a kid scores really well? Are there some subtests (besides coding, which I know doesn't count) that few 99s actually do well in? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think there are certain tests that are condsidered most corelated with general IQ: vocabulary is one. OTOH, all bets are off when it comes to four year olds. [ Reply | More ]

Right - coding doesn't count. Apparently vocabulary and similarities in verbal and block design in performance are the most important subtests. Also, it's good if a child does fairly consistently across subtests. [ Reply | More ]

General Topics 06.06.08, 07:41 AM Flag

coding counts equally with the other 7 subtests. Supposedly, similarities correlates best with math, oral language and total acheivement and coding shows the least correlation with reading and total acheivement. Some schools (like CGPS) claim that low coding scores do not hurt chances of getting in. [ Reply | More ]

Coding counts, too. Maybe not as much as vocab and similarities, but it counts (otherwise they'd nix it). [ Reply | More ]

Mainly, they don't want to see a big gap between subtests. They want to see evenness. I don't think they care as long as overall score is 99 and there is no big gap. If there is a big enough gap for concern, I don't think a dc can score 99 anyway. [ Reply | More ]

we were still all over the place at 3 mo, and at 4 mo dd stopped sleeping altogether - too young for crying, so I nursed to sleep when she was "ready." That still meant a bedtime between 10 and 11 pm. and sporadic naps. Things came together a bit more around 5.5 mo. [ Reply | More ]

I called the school, and the message said to call Jimmy Bueschen at DOE. There are rumors that some kids at our school have been called by the school, and about 1 mom w/ a kid at Lab, who supposedly has the list of kids who were accepted into Lab from our school, and is telling the parents who ask her. Not sure what is true, and what is rumor, but I hate this process. [ Reply | More ]

np: I feel your pain. My younger dc's school Principal said that the school got the middle school placement a few days ago. I checked with 5th grade friends and they said they did not get the letter or anything from school. Apparently, the school got a list. Insideschools.org said that the letter is coming out. Was UL your first choice? What is your second choice? Is it a test in school, like ESM or Salk? The parent coordinator at UL mentioned that if you get a call from your second choice for the admission test that means you did not get into your first choice. However, if your second choice is not a test in school, then it is hard to tell. GL. signed UL parent. [ Reply | More ]

OR: Apparently we are screwed. Did not get into UL, but got into MAT as second choice. Would have been great, except that no one told us that they were only going to test the 1st choice students for the honors program, so we are only accepted to the gen ed, which is not what we want. Luckily, we have a NEST acceptance, although that was our 3rd choice and we will of course appeal for UL. I know we are still very fortunate, but really frustrated with how little and inaccurate the information has been. Good luck to everyone else! [ Reply | More ]

That's the confusion about MAT. I think it is a great school, but they are very vague about their honors program. Other schools (like Baruch and Wagner) require you to list their SP prgrams separately, whereas MAT does not. NEST was a separate test (OLSAT, I think), and their letter came first, and is separate from the other DOE letters. Yes, you can accept there, and also your district school (not sure if this is also true if you are District 1). [ Reply | More ]
