Geek’s taking the SAT today and I’m astounded that the administration of this test is essentially unchanged from when I took it twenty-five years ago: bubble answer sheets and #2 pencils and a 4 week wait to get the scores. Unbelievable that we’re wasting all the paper for the test booklets and answer sheets if nothing else! that money could buy the schools computers (or iPads!) on which the students could take the test. And scores? Those should be handed to you as you exit the testing room. Ok maybe we don’t have good enough automated essay graders yet, so a week later via email for some parts isn’t unreasonable.
