I can just hear the thinking of the succubi at The College Board. As you all know, Gates had appointed Lord Coleman to be the decider for the rest of us about what should and should not be taught in math and English. After the appearance of the Common Core $tate $tandards, on the basis of that appointment, Coleman became president of the College Board and set about revising the already absurd SAT to create the Common Core edition, which I call the Scholastic Common Core Aptitude Test, or SCCAT. He made this test as convoluted as are all the state tests based on the Common Core (or on the “revised” standards that we are supposed to pretend aren’t the Common Core.Like those state tests, the new exams contain multiple-choice questions with “plausible” incorrect answers that are supposed, in an objective-test format, to test “higher-order thinking skills,” something that such questions are not ideal for doing. The new test questions are a confused and confusing mess.

I suspect that they knew that the new test was likely to be a disaster and so felt they had to do a trial run in Asia, first, where the populous has had testing beaten into them for millennia. Emperor Wen of Han introduced the Imperial Examination system for government posts in 165 BCE. Autocrats LOVE giving exams TO OTHER PEOPLE.

Welcome to the New Feudal Order.
