I graduated from high school last year, meaning I ended up dodging the worst of it, having taken only OAKS tests and the usual PSAT/SAT combos in my unprofessional academic career. I was supposed to have taken the ASVAB too, but I was sick the the day that test was administered, so I got to stay home. It wasn't a requirement for graduation, so no regrets here.
I do not envy you your Common Cores or Smarter Balances, but if given the chance I wouldn't trade places with you. Sorry.
