My thoughts after reading this article went something like this:
1. This is insanity
2. Thank goodness I’m old
3. This makes a lot of sense…or does it?
I think most of my fellow college grads would agree that this topic is a double edged sword. While it’s plain to see that GPA’s are not the best measure of an individual’s ability to succeed in the workplace, having a standardized test measure that may also not be the greatest measure. After all, many who have taken the SAT’s can agree that they are a better measure of how good someone is at taking a standardized test than of that person’s ability to success in a college environment. On the other hand with the rise of problems like cheating on college exams and having curved exams some may like the idea of having a standard measure across schools with which to display their ability to succeed.
