Test opponents have ways to seek changes
Editor: I am a long-time opponent of high stakes testing. Tests such as the FCAT, SAT, CLAST and the state's graduation exam are neither reliable measures of what a student has learned nor of what the student's capabilities are. Numerous studies have demonstrated that performance on such tests are not even reliable indicators of performance in college, as many of the abilities required for success in college cannot be measured by any test given on a single day. As a student who scored in the top 1 percent on his SAT exam but once dropped out of college after a couple years, I can attest to the myriad qualities required for success not on the exam.
