LENOIR, N.C. Several members of a North Carolina community are upset after high school students were given a controversial quiz.
WSOC-TV reported that it happened to students in an AP psychology class at West Caldwell High School in Lenoir.
They were told it was an intelligence test, according to WSOC-TV. The school district said it was a classroom assignment, describing it as a mock test to give students exposure to cultural bias.
After the quiz was given, school officials said there was discussion about bias and misconceptions in different cultures and the use of slang.
After the district was made aware of the assignment, the teacher was told not to use the Chitling Test again. School officials said an internal investigation is underway.
The superintendent of West Caldwell High School said the test has no place in the classroom.
He reportedly met with local African-American clergy, members of the NAACP and the police chief Thursday morning to discuss the test. Afterwards, they held hands and prayed.
I think the only one I’ve got correct is #8, only because of slang that went around in the 70’s.
What’s the connection with the AP ?
What a joke.
How many crackers do you have to break to win the Knockout Game?
a. 1 brick
b. 1 Box
c. One Caucasian
d. As many as you can before being tased
Hattie Mae Johnson is on the County. She has four children and her husband is now in jail for non-support, as he was unemployed and was not able to give her any money. Her welfare check is now $286 per month. Last night she went out with the highest player in town. If she got pregnant, then nine months from now how much more will her welfare check be?
(a) $80, (b) $2, (c) $35, (d) $150, (e) $100.
Wow. Considering that the kids are doing >so well in school<, apparently they have a lot of free time to give these kinds of tests. /sarc
Test was given in an AP psych class at Lenoir high school.
In other news, Lenior was listed as the 5th most miserable place to live in the US a while back.
So what did they axed them?
So dey made up this test ta show dem whities dat dey don no nuffin.
Whoa. Hard to believe the teacher didn’t stop to think that someone would complain over this!
I knew 5, 8, 12 and 13. The other questions...no idea!
PS, I have eaten chitlins once in my life. ONCE.
AP as in Associated Press ?
I think I would fail this Chitling Test.
Do you boil or fry chitlings? I do not know.
But as for question #6, I think the answer is.. “slap dat ho”. Any time a pimp is up tight with a woman, then “slap dat ho” is the ONLY answer.
AP as in Advanced Placement.
“The school district said it was a classroom assignment, describing it as a mock test to give students exposure to cultural bias.

Question #1 from the “The Cracker Test”:
What does your father do after a hard day at work:
1) Take you to your baseball game
2) Mow the yard
3) Relax and drink a beer
4) All of the above
Most of them seem to be answered by “C”, T-Bone Walker was “D”.
I’ve had fried chitlings.
I think I’d puke if they were boiled.
As a former Marine, I do know that “2a.) splib” is not out of place on that list.
If there are two dice, wouldn't the that depend on what combination equals seven on top? 3 & 4 or 6 & 1 on top would have different bottoms than 5 & 2.
(e) Assuming the “highest player” was a step up from her husband, and that her welfare check is only for child support.
The Chitlin test looks designed to show the impact of biased questions on test scores. What they dont tell students is that despite decades of effort removing “culturally biased” questions from standardized tests certain groups still score dramatically worse than others. Bottom line, we can send a man to the moon but we still cant come up with standardized tests where certain groups score as well as whites.
The Stupid Cracka that just walked by with the rolex.
The correct answer is: A. ($80)
I think you’re right. But what does this cracka know?
It’s always going to be 7.
One die will not give a 7! lol!
Actually, I WAS wrong. No matter the combination of dots on top of two die that equals seven...the bottom equals seven also. 5 is opposite 2, 4 is opposite 3, 6 is opposite 1. I had to look to be sure.
It’s always going to be 7.
6 and 1 up will have 1 and 6
3 and 4 up will have 4 and 3 down
5 and 2 up will have 2 and 5down
The question sates that their are two dice.
If whites overall still out scored blacks, even on this test, would that finally settle the question about bias in testing not being the cause of the disparity? So, how well did each racial group score on this test?
This hogwash apparently predates even the Dept of Education
I searched for Wadsworth, ending up here
and finding this
Title of doc: “Testing Human Potential: Report of Conference on New Techniques for Selecting Employees from Minority Groups”
“At this stage of the game I feel like the puppy dog’s tail. Dealing with what we now consider a four-letter word “test” and getting down to black and white, let us cover the aspects of what we want to really cover as far as needed action is concerned. Of course, here we are dealing with what we are going to do right now and certain recommendations have been made by our workshop, and there are as follows:
Number one, that tests be eliminated whenever possible and, of course, we are dealing here with a type of entry-level specifically. Then, accordingly, that common sense interviews be the basis of selection systems when this is done.”
Just one snippet...
Doc dated for the Conference, April 25-26, 1968
No, if there's a 6 on top then there's a 1 on the bottom.
If there's a 5 on top, there's a 2 on the bottom.
If they add up to 7 on top, they add up to 7 on the bottom, too.
I’m sorry, I can’t pass that test, I only know the meaning of “youth”, “teen”, “college bound”, “urban”, “challenged”, and “Amish”.
I only missed 2 questions.
What a stupid, rascist test!
Yep, I was thinking child support, not welfare. Welfare doesn’t care how much the father makes.
Yup. Figured that out 1 minute and 18 seconds before you posted. See #29.
A. A pack o' crackahs!

(example: I gave an extra credit assignment - "defy gravity" for at least 10 sec, and no more than 3 min... no touching or interference with the object after the timer begins. No electronics allowed. 1 point per second over 10. Some wonderfully creative ideas they came up with. Most simply used a weight from a scale-balance. Among my favorites: encase the weight in an ice cube attached to a string, and place it in front of a hair dryer that was turned on... several memorable Rube Goldberg contraptions... etc etc etc)
Something's fishy right there.
1. The ratio of width of the National flag of India to its length is A. 3:5 B. 2:3 C. 2:4 D. 3:4
2. Rabindranath Tagore's 'Jana Gana Mana' has been adopted as India's National Anthem. How many stanzas of the said song were adopted?
A. Only the first stanza
B. The whole song
C. Third and Fourth stanza
D. First and Second stanza
3. 'Natya - Shastra' the main source of India's classical dances was written by
A. Nara Muni
B. Bharat Muni
C. Abhinav Gupt
D. Tandu Muni
4. 'Dandia' is a popular dance of
C. Tamil Nadu
5. The words 'Satyameva Jayate' inscribed below the base plate of the emblem of India are taken from
B. Satpath Brahmana
C. Mundak Upanishad
Same effect: a bunch of very smart kids can feel very dumb when asked to show skills and knowledge in a culture they are unfamiliar with. No need for getting Jesse and Al's panties in a bunch.
If I read it right then the superintendent met with a group of people and then prayed. Why is everyone protesting the test and not the prayer. After all, liberal groups always claim a separation of church and state.
Is there any natural law why that would be so? I can make a cube with any number on any side. Two cubes don't even have to be identically marked.
Disclaimer: I haven't seen those cubes for many decades.
Sure you can, but legal dice must have opposite faces add up to 7.
