Conversation with a child, take 3

13 year old girl: I took this test today, it was SO hard. And I didn't even know what it was about! How can they give us those tests?

Me: What class was it? It was probably your pre-test, those are hard, but they're just to see how much you've learned by the end of the year.

13 y/o: No, I don't think so. It was in science, but it wasn't called a pre-test, it was something that started with an S. Startel, or Sacel, or something like that.

(pause while she brainstorms other S names)

Me: Was it SCANTRON?

13 y/o: Yes! That's it! How did they expect me to take a test about Scantron when I've never even studied it before?
