    TESTING, TESTING Washington state is having a hard time getting the students to take their no-stakes test seriously, so they’ve resorted to bribery. What caught my eye, though, was this:

    The state’s six public colleges and universities have agreed to link WASL scores to scholarships and admissions before the Class of 2008 graduates. They are working with state Superintendent of Public Instruction Terry Bergeson to address issues such as how to consistently administer the test and ensure that racial minorities — already at the low end of the achievement gap — aren’t at a disadvantage for college admission.

    I hope they keep in mind that not everyone has to take these tests.
