I agree the technology is not necessarily helping. My kids have had to start taking tests using a clicker, where the information goes immediately into a computer. They let the parents try out the clickers and I really didn't like it. My son said it was hard to go back and change an answer. Some of the parents wanted to request that our children not use the clicker, only to be told that the test for college admission (ACT) was going to be done by clicker, so they needed to get used to it. They also told us that many of the universities are requiring that the students buy a clicker to take the tests in some of the classes.
