How That Regents Test You Took Might Be Flawed
So, you were sitting there taking your Geometry Regents and you got to one of the questions where it seemed as if there were two correct answers. Were you seeing things? Were you doubting what you knew? Was it a trick question?
Wait, Regents Exams can't ever be wrong, right? Well, hang on. The New York State Department of Education said this week that one of the questions on this years Geometry exam had two potential correct answers.
There is a chance that you could have scored higher on the test if you answered the 'correct' answer that was selected wrong. Education department officials are going back over the exams and will be counting the second answer as being correct, so there is a chance that your Regents Exam score could be higher.
