The epidemic was volatile. Our emotions resonated with the number of infection cases every day. Yet, the health policy that determined our daily lives did not relate much to the figures. What really mattered was the interpretation of the figures by our government experts. Do you remember the days of reporting about four thousand infection cases? The government experts described the situation as if facing a huge monster. Unexpectedly, a report of more than fourteen thousand infection cases was interpreted as a low-risk state instead. Though ridiculous, it sheds me light on the understanding of student attainment. For instance, if a kid scores 50 on a math test, 50 may be the bottom of the class. The mark on its own does not form meaning for the kid, but the teacher’s interpretation does. Experts can transcribe 90 marks as negligible or 30 as significant attainment. The key is if the experts want to dampen or build the kid’s confidence. As for me, if the score, or the rank of the score, can build the kids’ confidence, they are significant. If they just dampen the kids, they are a reference. “Don’t you realize that in a race, everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! -1 Corinthians 9:24.” My kids, no regret if they reflect your full effort.
