Satoru: Like it or not, the educational system depends on quantification.
Tim: Yeah, but it has gone too far. Some constructs can't be expressed in mere digits. As a result, much "educational research" is rubbish.
Satoru: I'm not sure. Numerical data does often offer a useful guestimate of what's happening.
Liao: So many valuable things outside of standard test parameters are not being measured!
Melissa: For sure. Perhaps we need more "assessment literacy".

Eeeeentrance Eeeexams
Here's a kummun gaime
dat niver seams ta change:
fill in dah korrect boxes
next ta a test battery
an' if your total score
is in dah top 10%
YOU'RE IN! YOU WIN!

Otherwise
pay a exorbitant fee
fer a ritzy degree
err better yet
create your own credentials
with DTP!

Why do we attempt ta measure learning
by publications, titles, err degrees?

Kun the deepest learning
be expressed numerically?
