Remember back when Tom Carper proposed a split diploma, one for those who followed the rules and one for those who slid through?
Well it appears Delaware’s Common Core Tests will do the exact same thing. The common core test is programed to be reactive to the tester. It responds to the data given by the tester previously, then chooses whether or not to give an easy or a difficult question in the next round.
This is the approach marketed by the Smarter Balanced approach. The other approach, PARCC is older school with a collective bank of questions it draws from sorted by each grade level.
So with a Smarter Balanced Assessment test, how does one throw the score to achieve higher marks?
Act dumb at first then answer all the easy questions afterwards….. How much money are we paying these guys?
