At last week's CATS Task Force meeting there was a suggestion that Kentucky - being the only state to use writing portfolios in its state assessment - is surely out-of-step with other, more enlightened states.
After all, if writing portfolios were such a good idea, everybody would want them. Right?
Supposedly to fix this problem, those who want to discontinue the problematic CATS suggest substituting the ACT, with its over-advertized benchmarks.
But lo and behold, Kentucky is one of just five states that requires the ACT for all high school juniors.
I'm just sayin' ...
