Today is the start of state standardized testing in Illinois.

We just got last year's results in the mail 10 days ago. Those results were sure some useful results in guiding teachers in educating the student population this year.

Geez... :slap:

Okay, here's stupidity for you. In our local school district, the juniors in our HS have to pass the senior level standardized tests in order to qualify for graduation...hello?

In difficult child's school they don't make the seniors take the CAPT - instead they have to put together a really comprehensive senior portfolio, which I think is a much better idea.
