I think I hate this concept even more.

I find these quotes a little disturbing:

" . . . .there is a disconnect between what schools value and what they measure. But it’s a tough nut to crack, because many of the skills and characteristics treasured most are in fact the hardest to evaluate."

and

"the idea is to measure “all the things we say we care about”—like curiosity, creativity and critical thinking—"

It seems like the ULTIMATE in dumbing down and teaching political correctness. We won't test on language and math, but instead we'll test on things we *really* value. :?
