Students Feel Over Tested
by Dylan and Jared
We both had Mrs. Kelly Wood as a teacher and know she feels strongly about the topic of over testing. So after choosing this topic for a story, we already had our first interview figured out.
After hearing Mrs. Wood's thoughts, we found Joe Omer. He received a 33 on his ACT and is well-known as a good test taker.
After that, we found WHS Alumni Emmy Lopez. She always struggled with tests, so we felt she could give good balance to the story.
We then found a person who is in the middle, sometimes he does well on tests and other times not so much. Brandon Repp provided a good perspective.
After the interviews, we filmed b-roll that made the story come together. The editing process was pretty easy with the interviews and an abundance of b-roll.
We had a great time working together and there were a lot of laughs, even though it was a story about kids taking too many tests.
It was a good story to tell because of the number of people who feel so strong about the topic. It gave people who were fed up with so many tests a chance to speak out.
We hope you enjoy the story and learn a bit more about the issue.
