Presidential election could set precedent for SAT scores
I recently took the SAT for the third time and have decided I will ultimately score a 1600. What is my logic? I figure with all of the examples set by Vice President Al Gore, I should be able to argue my way out of anything.
What is going to keep me from arguing that the directions were too confusing or that when I tried to erase, my eraser didn't do a good enough job and the machine miscounted it?
I have seen people from both sides of the election make ridiculous arguments about anything and everything that could go wrong. People testified about everything, including that the machines were too old to do an effective job. There was a statistician arguing that candidates on the left side of the ballot get fewer votes than those on the right.
If it doesn't work for me to say that the machines used to score the SAT are too old to be effective, I could always say that I meant to fill in letter "C," not letter "A." Would they not have to go with the test-taker's intent?
