novapsyche: a woman of stature circa 1900s peering out of a ring (womanring)

If you didn't know, I work for a scoring facility. We score the tests of middle- & high-school students across the country. The season is not long but it is intense.

We scorers are sworn to absolute secrecy as to the nature of questions, even to the methodology of scoring methods. The entire industry is cloaked in secrecy.

So who is it that broke security to take these pictures for this National Review story? Either it involved administrators, students, or scorers. No other subgroup exists. (Oh, also, parents. These pics may have occurred during homework time instead of proctor time. *sigh*)

The sad thing about the story is that, given just maybe 30 seconds, it becomes clear what logic is needed to address the question. Yes, Common Core is going to be a bear for the first two or three years, as curricula catches up, but beyond that students should be able to adjust. The only item I can't figure out at first glance is "doubles +1", because a relevant portion of the page is missing.
