But only for the first year of the test. If memory serves me correctly there's
a three year "phase-in" and in the third year the passing standard will be 70%.

I told my 9th graders that this 50% correct for passing is a bunch of crap - 70%
is marginally acceptable - but 50% is not acceptable. Better than 80% of my
students had a grade of 70% or better. I was proud of 'em. Very proud.

Unfortunately, it wasn't nearly as difficult as I was anticipating.

If anyone wants to take a look-see:
