Addendum to my last entry
I realized I never even gave myself the chance to talk about my main concern with measuring students' education. I'm afraid all college is going to come down to is standardized tests at the end of one's college career. I know that my scores on the SAT/ACT mattered far less to my ability to be successful in college than finding a professor with whom I connected and field in which I was interested. Some standardized tests may have their place, but I can just see each discipline being forced to come up with a type of version of the subject GRE exam at the end of 4 years.
