Am I the only one who remembers having semester exams for the first semester of each of my high school courses (4 yrs X 7courses each year =28) plus a year end exam for each course (7X4=28)thus making that 56 exams just in high school??? Not to mention the Senior thesis paper that was 60% of the English IV grade and was a semester project??
Why do we assume that setting a time limit is a bad thing for a test? If you take a test during class you have 52 minutes, each of the SAT test sections are timed....why would you want to allow the kids to not have to critically think about how to take tests and finish them in the time allotted? Drivers tests are timed, when you have a job you are expected to perform you work in a timely manner, etc, etc.
I understand this is written from a current junior's point of view, and that is my point. The expectations kids have of the "real world" do not line up and that is why you have many that are struggling.
