a letter from Noa Rosinplotz, datapoint

The author at the link below talks a bit about items from the 6th grade assessments where she goes to school.  Here’s a test item and her take on it (the not boldfaced part is her.)

If “Nasser of the Shaduf had been written in the third person, the reader would probably have learned less about which of the following?

a) Nasser’s childhood

b) Nasser’s sisters

c) how Nasser felt about working the shaduf

d) how his father felt about Nasser

I think they’re all a little bit wrong.
