If you think it’s absurd that the potential of each and every U. student (that’s about 20 million for those of you scoring at home) could be effectively measured by a single instrument, you’re in good company.

If you think it’s absurd that the potential of each and every U. student (that’s about 20 million for those of you scoring at home) could be effectively measured by a single instrument, you’re in good company.

You even put in a few excruciating volunteer hours at a local old folks home, though it meant spending your sunny afternoons playing canasta and watching “Murder She Wrote” reruns with cheek-pinching septuagenarians. Every single thing you’ve done in your life until this point boils down to your performance on a single, socioculturally-biased, multiple-choice exam to be administered over four hours on a random Saturday morning as yet to be determined.

The evidence was even more compelling, Freedle resolved, when one considered that black students routinely scored higher on those test items classified as harder.

Minorities scores were lower on allegedly easier items.

Naturally, this was exceptionally problematic with more than 1.6 million students taking the exam in a given year.

Though the Educational Testing Service did its darnedest to refute Freedle’s findings, the researcher’s conclusions have proven difficult to erase from our collective assumptions about the SAT.
