That's just something stupid people say to make them feel less stupid.

My twopence: While there are certainly some problems with standardized testing, they generally do a fair job of assessing your knowledge in the areas that they claim to test. The problem occurs when people try to define their general intelligence, or even (God forbid) their value as a human being, on them. That's why wise schools and employers take all such tests with a grain of salt and usually conduct their own tests or interviews to supplement them. Of course, there are plenty who don't or can't afford to do so, so the criticism definitely has some validity.

This isn't a very good representation of our educational system. ******* are stupid, yet in the cartoon he would surely win.

everytime i see this i hate it. in school we have different tests. maths, science, english, languages, art etc. so we test each student on each skill and yes if they fail at math then they arnt good at math but they will probably pass english and so the are clever at english. same goes for this. the fish will fail at climbing trees because it cant but will win in a water race because thats what it is good at.

Stupid people always love to mistake the words of a genius in order to blame the system for their poor performance in school.

I get your point but I believe its a bit misleading. Yes we are all unique, special and all that crap but the fact is is that there are certain skills that you should have as a functional human being. You should be able to read, write, do basic math, and understand simple scientific ideas. I'm not asking everyone to understand everything in great detail but I'm so ******* tired of hearing absolute morons spout of stuff that is completely wrong b/c they have been filled with overconfidence.

I hate all the distaste people have for standardized testing. So what if our education system is designed towards tests, tests are high pressure situations where an overall and well-rounded education and the ability to make inferences and critically think determine how well you do. Isn't that the same thing as average life? The bigger issue is homework at a young age as it just kills people's motivation to learn.

But, if the fish did climb the tree it would be considered a genius
User avatar #131 - Gandalfthewhite (04/27/2014) [-]
because schools only have one major test to decide everything. This is why we have multiple tests done in multiple different styles to see what different individuals are good at

Sorry Albert, but Imma have to disagree there. Everybody is most certainly not a genius. And if you cant pass high school, you are, in fact, stupid. Or just very, very lazy and bad at prioritizing things.

No, thats actually a myth. He simply did poorly a few years because he wouldn't pay attention.

You could dress it up however you like, but if a doctor can't properly treat patients, or an engineer's mistake causes bridges to collapse, then well, they don't deserve the position

Just because Einstein said it doesn't make it right.
He still only had one life of experience, he can not comprehend what it is to not be a genius because he was one.

This doesn't make sense. You are all human. You do not have any mental retardations that prevent you from performing. So why the hell do you think you are any different from those who can perform well on tests?  I swear most things can be accomplished with just a bit of effort.

Humans have developed complex systems of tons of categories of things, and people are raised differently, unequally, and have differences in genes that affect mental makeup. It's completely legitimate. So if one person isn't equipped do a certain type of test and ends up not doing as well, like auditory learners and visual learners taking a test taught by a class using visual techniques, it's not going to be a fair shot.

Except in this scenario we would all be monkeys and not a variety of animals and some people are just dumb, nothing more, nothing less
