Don’t students have enough testing hoops to jump through during the course of student lifetime? Employers have twelve years plus college, of student file to use if they so choose and one more hoops seems to be overkill.
Standardized testing is big business
Employees from college come in recommended by friends and relatives, and of their own accord, and the interview process along with assessment of the individual and their qualities should be enough for the employer to decide of the person in front of them is worthy of hiring. Anything more is a racket bred to infiltrate the pockets even further for lint-soaked cash if any a college student or their parents may have left.
Over testing in the college school system is killing schools and the student-teacher relationship. In Atlanta an entire school system is at war and in court of “cheating.” Add another test and the system will go up in flames. The tests help predict nothing in the way of future behavior except to an employer who may come in contact with them as they appear to have made it through the system and are prepared to be a “yes man” to the corporation. Any other mentality is not measured in these tests or identified as a “good hire.”
More errors will be made, meaning bias against the poor and ethnic backgrounds who lack the “coaching” and the costs of coaching an economically advanced college student has access to. It’s all about the money and speaks nothing to getting the human being the job.
The key is getting every student and non-student a job, another GPA testing trap is not what is needed. Another river added to an already flawed system is not the answer. For the "college students" who tested well and are at the head of the global mass destruction of the banking system this test will have proved what? They were the better hire, really?
