FREDERICK, Md. — Students at the Maryland School for the Deaf were asked on a standardized test to match words containing similar sounds, and state education officials promised to adjust the scores.I'm sure when they first decided to ask deaf students to make the matches, the task made sense. I mean, it had to, right?
The state also will ensure that questions in this year's Maryland School Assessment are appropriate for hearing-impaired students, spokesman Bill Reinhard said Monday.
Boy, oh boy, no wonder why we're such a great country: our educational leaders are so smart, always.
