SAT SCORES FOR THE OCTOBER 1st SAT HAVE COME BACK. Students around the school chatter around and discuss how they did. Some smile with satisfaction, some dread the inevitable retake they will have to face.
Why does standardized testing have such a powerful influence on students? How does a single test influence which college you get into or your success in life? Most importantly, how does a test determine an individual’s intelligence or worth?
I think a person’s worth is measured by their footprint that they leave behind; the positive impact that they have on the world and on other people. That should be the determining factor of someone’s worth, not their grades or SAT scores.
