Rendering Unto Caesar

We're taking a break from college level history and high school science to do something tedious but necessary. I'm teaching my kid how to take a standardized test, as it is the year of required state sponsored stupidity here. If I had my way, we would never ever waste time on this, but I will grudgingly render unto Caesar... I'm just glad homeschoolers are still free to mostly avoid this nonsense. I know what my kid knows, and what he needs to work on. I don't need a test to tell me that. But if it will keep TPTB out of our hair and leave us free to work at Mikro's level the rest of the time, I guess I can spare a week or two for this frivolous and inane dreck... Bah, Humbug!

Do you use the CAT test? This year's should be fun as it is now aligned with Common Core standards. (note: sarcasm)
