Why do you choose to pimp junk science? What proof is offered? Did you actually read the research report? If you did you would find that the research did not actually test what the title or the reseachers are concluding. What we know is that the exams administered which DO NOT actually have enough difficult questions to discern excellence from good.

Bee, based on a very large sample they dispel the general myth that girls inherently do not do as well as boys as standardized math tests. Granted the time scale of the sample is limited but the diversity of states in the survey is not.

I agree with you overall tests could be tougher but that is a different problem and does not to me justify calling this study "junk"
