Tests, by nature, are designed to reveal. Level, rank, resources. Character, motivation, determination.
I took a class in graduate school - testing theory. Not that it has helped me in real life. My tests are never fair and the grading scale is harsh and no one ever seems to have the proper test taking skills.
So I've revised my methodology. The tests are over. It's now trial by fire.
Question for the day: when was the last time you were tested?
