    The LCMS, however, can create, manage and deliver not only training modules but also manage and edit all the individual pieces that make up training modules. The subscription or license of LMCS is usually pricier that of LMS.

    There is no "standard" student, and this approach to "educating" is abominable; it approaches the process with a regimentary, corporatist mind-set, a sort of throwback to Taylorism wherein schools become factories charged with processing students in suitable and tractable products.

    I think Emerson had it right---public education has to be messy if it is intended to encourage the individual genius of each student and promote a sane, humane society.

    I recommend most works by Diane Ravitch on this very issue. It's extremely problematic and extremely not helping.

    The reason "Standardizing" is done is considered evaluations of the aptitude of school.
    Its to help understand where everyone's mind is at.

    Sure you could have tests all thoroughly designed on personal levels, but that takes to much time.

    Schools are useless. No one actually learns anything. You are just a grade of body. Sorta like a cow in a meat classification, but instead of being consumed... You will be employed and analyzed by the state. Grade A!
    The only reason that is so funny and disturbing, is because how true it is.

    I think the only reason you do not take inside the reading application, is because systems may scare you. No reason to be scared of a device or looking foolish on the system. The computer will not judge you.

    Schools are useless though--even with computer integrated courses. Reading over your post you seem like you would prefer a group activity and working a long side of other people and not with a stupid machine. Right?
    But we really have no choice to what we have to endure to learn... Sure we could, but no school could afford hiring as many teachers for each student individually. No school could afford that. Schools can barely afford computers in the classroom.
    Schools probably will not change its uniform of standards in this era or the next, sadly. School system is ran by the Government and the Government fears changes that could result in pure waste of money. That is why the Government allows private companies to start schools and trial their schooling idea in there own time. Then slowly the government incorporates the tested ideas into the public school system.
    It is a very long, time consuming process that stretches by-decade. But the worse part is it is stupid. The Government will complain about kids not being smart, but doesn't do anything about it. They just do that to look productive? ?

    very insightful! standardized tests cause more suffering than anything, we need to evolve our education system

      AMEN! States and schools should focus on individuals; not test scores. Our learning system is sickening.
