    I had a friend who decided he would "volunteer" as a grader for the FCAT during a brief stay in FLorida. He's an outstanding educator and Ph.D. He was dumbfounded by the low level of expertise of those others in the room who were going to be graders, and in the end decided he didn't want to be part of it.

    Tests (and statistics) are only as good as the testmakers and those who grade. These are low level tests, intended to focus education on low level skills.
