1. Without looking back, the test result Lou is talking about is: a) GPA b) SAT c) GRE d) GED e) some other TLA (three letter acronym)
2. The point Lou is making is: a) an A is indistinguishable from a D because neither can be scientifically validated b) we need a ministry of grading for validation of all tests c) any grade he has ever given out is in error d) he has never passed a pregnancy test e) if Wayne says north then Lou must argue south regardless of the absurdity
Look for official answers in tomorrow's email.
