    I tend to zone out, selective hearing so to speak. We all have to have a coping mechanism.

    Iowa doesn't have any testing requirements for graduation. Glad I didn't go to NY!

    Texas is king of standardized testing. High school is, for the most part, "here's how to pass this test. Take this test. Here's how to pass this test." It's no wonder that we do so abysmally compared to other states and countries in the real world: there's no test for which to be taught. We're lost.
    TAAS, ITBS, TAKS, AP, CLEP... we know 'em all.

    We do ITBS, but that's in elem and middle. I don't remember doing it in high school. In high school we had the ASVAB (military) and the ACT. SATS was available if you wanted to take it, but I chose not to.

    I don't remember the ASVAB. I took the SAT. When I was in school, it was the TAAS, but they changed the name to TAKS and apparently made it so you could pass it with a 6th grade education, not a 3rd grade education.

    Here in Ohio, we have the OAA's for 3rd through 8th grade. We used to have a graduation test, but Gov Kasich has decided that the ACT or SAT would be better. My graduating class in 1994 was the first class required to take a graduation test.

    I tend to kick, scream, yell obscenities and cry when angry or frustated.

    MA has mandatory state testings. My year was the first year they tried it out on 4th graders (the first year it was implemented at all). Used to be 4, 8th, and 10th grade, and required for graduation. Now they stretch it out over most years from 4th and up.

    I don't know what will happen with my brother, who is 15, and not in a regular high school, and has Down Syndrome. He's high functioning, but I don't think he could pass those tests.

    I am sort of surprised that they don't have a way for them to still earn their high school diplomas, that is beyond sad.

    Up to a few years ago, there was a local diploma option. Miraculously, every kid in NY can now pass the exams.
