A colleague recently forward the following job ad to me — you can make of it what you will.
One does, however, have to wonder just who (or what) will be “meticulously writing, re-writing, measuring, testing, and balancing new questions before they are ever presented to students.” At what point will actual humans be involved?
I guess we now know why the experimental section on the SAT could be safely jettisoned. When you can run high-powered simulations (gathered from Khan Academy student data?), who needs test-takers?
And who needs ETS when there’s the Hive?
