I shouldn’t be surprised. A federal commission is recommending that colleges and universities move to standardized testing.
It being Friday night, I really don’t feel like typing out all that is running through my mind on this matter. I’ve always been good at standardized tests, yet I strongly despise this trend in that direction. Every high school student in Texas has not only to pass a series of such tests to graduate from high school, but another test to enter college.
I wish I had been allowed to simply take the test when a freshman; I would have been able to save the state some tax money by passing the test and skipping on to college.
I am still waiting for the day that any job I have presents me with nothing but the choice of a, b, c, or d. All day every day. Then and only then will the standardized of all school testing make sense to me.
