Live and Die by Test Scores

It's the oddest thing. When the test is easier, the scores are higher. So when you hear about those remarkable gains, you have to ask yourself, is it the incredible reform movement, or is the test just easy?

The Daily News leans toward the latter. So if test scores are the only factor in quality, the answer is--dumb down the test. Then declare victory. It's another brilliant gain for the reform movement. When the scores go down, it's those damn teachers. Close some more schools and send em to the ATR brigade.
