  1. Great post. Keep on doing what you can to make standardized testing look stupid. Check my summary of "The Myths of Standardized Testing" at http://bit.ly/lJLUNR if you haven't yet.

  2. My 8th grade son told me that the teachers are considering letting students read if they finish a test early this year. For both my sons, this is what they dread the most - just. sitting. there. for. a. long. time. No longer are teachers trusted to identify students who rush through a test just go do something else when they are finished. That must take extra training or something... #snark.

  3. I remember taking standardized tests and having to just sit there afterwards. It was horrible, and I really dreaded testing days. I loved this post! I couldn't help but snicker at the truth of it!
