Knowledge is not skill. Knowledge plus 10,000 times is skill. – Shinichi Suzuki
THE SAT: We cannot afford to ignore tests because they fall short of perfection or make us uncomfortable. What if, in addition to the SAT, students were offered new tests that measured more diverse abilities? For future artists or musicians, there are tests that measure divergent thinking — a cornerstone of creativity largely ignored by the SAT. For future engineers, there are tests that measure spatial reasoning. And new measures of “personal intelligence” — the ability to reason about a person’s motives, emotions and patterns of activities — may also tell us something important about students’ self-knowledge and understanding of others.
