No, but it actually is. I just told my mom to stop acting so superficial when I actually meant to say superior.
Even though there are many arguments against the SAT saying that it's bias or it's much easier for rich kids who pay for test practice, I pose the question of what else are we going to do? We can't always trust the grades schools turn in to colleges, but we can always trust a number on a standardized test. How else can we fairly measure and compare the intelligence of one kid from one town to another kid from a different town?
If you have an easy solution to any of these questions, please let me know.
I am not saying I approve or like standardized testing. I hated CMTs, I hated CAPTs, and now I have moved on to hating the SATs and ACTs. All that I am saying is that there are a lot of people out there who talk too much about the problems of standardized testing and don't offer out enough reasonable solutions.
Please let me know if you have a good, justifiable substitution for standardized tests because I know that I, for one, would love to hear it.
