It took my son until 6th grade to figure out that his 2 or 3 grade above
average scores on the placement test for "accelerated reader" were making it
harder for him to get points and find books in his category. I didn't even
chastise him, when he told me he threw the test in the fall, and that's why
his level was 4th grade. He did a more believable job in the spring and hit
7th. I'm not raising any stupid kids.
