Good morning! In today's roundup, we take a look at how changes to the state tests for grades 3-8 could complicate the picture when it comes to evaluating struggling schools. Meanwhile, voices from around the city continue to weigh in on why the test scores went up. We also visit a computer-science training for elementary school teachers that shows them how to use "unplugged activities" to engage even the youngest students. — Cassi
