I got my "TerraNova" test results back from some tests we took in school last year. You know, the ones that they force you to take which decide how much money the school gets from the state.<br><br>I took the Reading and Social Studies tests, which is what was given to all 11th graders at the time. In Reading, I scored better than 81% of students in the nation, and better than 85% in Social Studies. That means I can walk up to random people and say "I'm better than you" and have a 4/5 chance of being right!<br><br>For the test itself, I was in the "Nearing Proficiency" category for Reading, and "Proficient" for Social Studies. That's on a scale in the order of Step 1, Progressing, Nearing Proficiency, Proficient, and Advanced.<br><br>My strongest point in Reading was "Discover relationship" .. whatever that means, I don't know. I got 83% correct in that section. My weakest point was "Reason logically" with 50% correct.<br><br>My strongest points in Social Studies were "Identify and solve problems" and "Solid foundation and knowledge of the major elements of geographical study and analysis (such as location, place, movement, regions) and their relationship to change in society and environment" which I both got perfect scores in. My weakest point was "Solid foundation and knowledge of principles and processes of governace systems" which I got 58% correct in.<br><br>These tests were a bit different from your normal 100 multiple choice tests though, because most of the answers had to be written in. I'd hate to be the poor fool that has to grade all of these. For the Reading one, I had to write an essay about some bullshit, and my essay was exactly that, bullshit.<br><br>Thankfully, Seniors don't have to take any tests like this, which throw out results like the above that really don't count for much.
