SAT's and ACT's shouldnt make such impact becuase students take these tests that test them on math literature and english which kno a days is not somthing needed so much as it used to be... everything now is computerized and stuff like that.....

The SATs and ACTs are important because the success for students on these tests has a direct correlation to better success in college and earning better careers.

I strongly disagree with your point advocating the negation with the "computerized and stuff" America. Regardless of how "computerized" America is, mathematics and language will always exist. When using technology, one must have a strong grasp of verbal communication and mathematics.

You consider it "rediculus" because you are not an intellectual. The SAT was MEANT to be challenging to separate the Harvard-bound students from the State/Tech school and Community College ones.

Standardized tests were not created to test common knowledge or provide material for everyday life, however to act as a challenging comprehensive exam that evaluates a student's ability to succeed on the competitive collegiate level.

I agree that mathematics and language are still as important as ever. However, standardized tests, particularly the SAT (I don't know as much about the ACT) are not thr best way to test them. Some students don't do well on tests, thier minds don't work thst way. How good you are at choosing which of the little bubbles to color in has no correlation to real life.
