Something just occurred to me...

since college degrees aren’t worth much anymore...

and since the ACT/SAT is supposed to measure your likelihood of success in college...

why not just judge someone by their scores instead of their degree?

Cheaper, eh, to take the test and not actually go?

I like the idea of online certification, where a computer remembers everything a student learned and cycles through the skills and knowledge a bit at a time to refresh their memory. Before computers, administering tests was expensive, hence the one time test on a subject and then letting the student forget after that. Really learning anything and not refreshing the knowledge once in a while is a waste of learning time. A student shouldn't waste their time learning anything they don't plan to maintain.

The SAT has become a joke. It used to be boys scored higher than girls, whites and asians higher than others. The test makers keep tweaking the SAT questions under pressure from libtard colleges to obtain equal outcomes.

The MCAT test for medical school is still honest. On average the men still outscore women by about 10%, partially because men's brains are physically about 10% larger. But the libtards are starting to attack that one too. Under Obamacare they will have to start letting more subprime-students into medical school. Many sick people will suffer needlessly because of it and some people will die.
