SKL Posted April 3, 2018 Share Posted April 3, 2018 What is the purpose nowadays of standardized tests, especially the ones generally meant to assess college readiness (ACT / SAT)? From what I hear, it seems the results are going to be more about how much prep / help the student got before the test vs. what his actual academic strengths are. If that is the case, then am I a neglectful parent if I don't push "test prep"? Am I wrong to be cynical about the whole business? When I was in high school, the majority of kids did no "test prep" at all, and most didn't re-take the tests regardless of their scores. I realize a lot has changed since then, but I would still think the colleges would want to know how the kids would do without test prep - at least I would. Thoughts? 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
