Retaking the MEAP

Kids across the state have to retake the MEAP test. So this time wasting test must now waste yet more time as students have to re-take the written part of the exam. I am not real fond of this test to begin with as I don't believe it represents a true assessment of a kids education. It's all standard and they practice for weeks for it. A true assessment wouldn't need practice now would it? Shouldn't it just be a showing of what the kids have learned rather than what has been drilled into them in the weeks leading up to test days. For example, my middle son hasn't done anything in his language arts class...nothing but MEAP prep since the start of the year. No books to read, no lessons learned, just drilled in knowledge that will protect the school from funding losses.
