...Because I'm in the 8th grade, and everybody in certain grade in Pennsylvania had to take this PSSA (Pennsylvania State Standardized Assessment) Test thing. If you live in PA, you know what I'm talkinjg about.

Since last week, my whole grade, and probably even every 8th, 5th, and another grade in my state has been taking them, almost every other day.

This was the last day, and we got out early at like 10. :p

i remember takin those, they were a load of bull, but i remember that the school would buy like 600 egg mcmuffins for everyone every morning so that we werent hungry when taking the test.

of course there was a big scandal that year where a couple schools had the students cheat to boost thier schools score, so the whole test was basicly thrown out. we studied and did stupid ass BCR's for months for this thing, then pspent a week doing it, and the state didnt even use the results becasue some schools cheated.


meh, oh well, i got some good food out of it

Word. We had 3 hours for the Math A regents, and I finished in 1...Wow, it was so easy. But yeah, regents suck. I gotta take so many of them damn things. That and AP tests...but at least for the AP tests we get college credits.

It's all pretty gay, there's like 7 sections of mathmatics, and reading. 215 problems total if I can remember correctly. It was easy and all, but I mean..it's a test...they suck. Think I did pretty good though.

What's the next grade after 8th that you have to take these tests? Anyone know?

we take ERB tests. They suck cus some of em arent multiple choice but its a standardized test so for reading comprehension you have to read something and write about it, but it takes me a while to write stuff. Plus i have really bad handwriting.

10th grade (this year) in January. The June tests of the year before were really hard, so they redid them and mine were super easy.

I'm taking a Spanish and a Chemistry regents at the end of this year, and an AP European test this May.

Nothings stupider then the literacy test. Here you take it in grade 10, keep taking it till you pass and cant graduate till you pass it. Its a waste of time is a load of bs. They do so much prep, and then you get it and its like.....Welcome to Grade 3, basic comprehension. Youd be surpirsed at how many people fail it though.
