Common Core … making math as difficult as possible [Darleen Click]
Is it any wonder the Common Core testing is still on the level of national secrets?
Well America, the Common Core-aligned standardized tests that Common Core supporters have zealously trumpeted as college-related and so dramatically superior to all previous standardized tests are finally starting to trickle out for public consumption.
New York is one state that has released some Common Core tests. The tests for elementary school kids remain strictly guarded. However, other tests including the Common Core Algebra Regents test which eighth- and ninth-grade students took in early June – and must pass at some point to get high school degrees – are now available online.
The algebra test is shockingly awful.
This isn’t stupidity, this is government-mandated child abuse.
Over the jump, a video demonstrates Common Core math, where a 2-step, 10-seconds-to-solve problem now takes almost a full 2 minutes and 5 steps.
