The math test is an interesting test to take. I have served as a tutor for test prep. I have two masters' degrees. Math has always been easy for me. Although I can figure out the problem, I can't always answer it in the terminology that they expect.

Oh and one other thing: Every student is supposed to score at class average--in this case 11th grade average. Grade level average has always been figured as the 50th %ile. That means that half of the children who take the test score above this point and half score below. How do we meet the goals without refiguring the grade level average?
