High stakes testing... part II

As I am tallying scores I am momentarily elated and proud of the MASSIVE improvement my kids have made - especially the ones that needed heavy remediation. Then that moment ends when I see that they just missed the benchmark score.

Hurrumph. Who made up that score? Can I put an asterisk next to the almost-made benchmark scores?
*Made phenomenal progress. Very smart kid. Stupid scoring system.

Sigh.
