On a reading test. Hmmm. Do I read better if I answer yes, or answer no? This was a question on a Smart Balanced Assessment test in another state.

The speaker in this video is challenging the Smart Balance Assessments. These tests are manipulative. How you answer one question allows the computer to decide which question to send you to next….

A couple problems mentioned here. One, the Smart Balanced Assessment question on honesty does not give a child the option to do the right thing. The child must chose which one of the wrong things he should do. This of course goes into the child’s record and will last forever, until the next EMP goes of above North America.

The Smart Balance Assessment is testing your child’s tolerance for being manipulated. Another question, you find out your family is moving to Siberia tomorrow. How would you spend your time. Crying, Calling friends, yelling at parents, running away… do any of these things have to do with reading? Yet the child can’t get up and walk away from the test. The child will look over and choose one on the spot because he can’t go on to the next question until he answers this one. The psychological answer, of course, becomes part of his permanent record…

The tests can be manipulated with difficulty going up, or difficulty going down, depending if the state wants to look proficient to save the governor’s job, or look really bad to drum up support for charters moving in and stealing public funding.

These tests simply cannot be trusted. The speaker in the poor quality video above, compares this to written tests, which adults can see and question, but in manipulative tests, parents or teachers do not know the questions.

Furthermore, if a evil ass republican principal named Dreyfus wants to remove an absolutely brilliant Harry Potter who is loved by excellent students, all he has to do is manipulate scores of those teacher’s students tests, to give him the excuse he needs to fire Teacher Harry Potter, and replace him with Teachers Crabbe and Goyle… who incidentally all got fantastic scores out of their classrooms through manipulation as well.

With the Smart Balanced Assessments, we have moved from accountability into secret chambers…

Since the Smart Balanced Assessment is fixed, already in, we need this session, as are other states, bills to allow any parent, and any teacher, to be able to see the actual physical questions and answers of their student’s tests…

Further more, parents must now caution students this spring, to not answer any question that does not pertain to a story they are reading, but is about themselves personally…. For every answer will go on that child’s record and keep him out of college and good jobs forever…

Better yet, parents .. Opt out. Go to Jamaica that week and take the kids…..

As to the question in the title. No, I would try to give the wallet back.. But wait, I’m stuck, that is not one of my options! Oh, what to do!
