High-Stakes Testing

Each year, a million or so high school students pay $45 for the chance to prove themselves with the College Board’s SAT. A good percentage of those students pay for the College Board’s test prep courses as well. All that testing adds up: The Big Money reports that the nonprofit College Board racked up a surplus of $55 million in 2006, and that its senior staffers earn an average of well over $200,000 a year. Not a bad line of work, if you can test into it. [%comments]
