Do The Results of Test Scores mean that America is no Longer Great?

As a follow up to my post on test scores, and the qualities a test can and can not measure, here is a great article by Diane Ravitch discussing America’s greatness, regardless of standardized test scores.

Anyone who seriously believes that the test scores of 15-year-old students in Estonia, Latvia, and other small countries puts our nation at risk cannot be taken seriously. Our competitive edge has always been those who think differently, outside the box, not inside it.

Good Stuff!
