Our Annual Testing Data Charade


I don't trust anything about NYS test scores as the exams were constructed by the same group of goons at NYSED and CTB-McGraw who produced the versions in previous yrs w/ huge inflation; I just don't think these guys know how to create reliable tests. I also don't trust the results because of Campbell's law and the overemphasis placed on test scores, and the lack of protections against cheating which were eliminated under Bloomberg and Klein. I honestly don't think they can tell you anything about anything.
