patently unfair in the way they are skewed through specific demographics.However the truth is there are many useful aspects to having a student go through what might feel like an artificial process and to go through it early and often I have done a fair bit of test tutoring in addition to my other work and one thing that I generally stress for my students is how to approach standardized tests It’s not just about concepts and ideas—it’s an ability to face stressful situations that have real consequences Stress management is essential when it comes to achievement in any career and at any university Waiting too long to take an important test can lead to test anxiety so the sooner students are able to adjust to this stress the better Have a plan and be ready I try to have my students consider that the “why” of these tests is about creating cognitive habits and abilities These tests are brain exercises and it’s never too early to begin your workout Will you use the binomial theorem in your daily life Probably not but this is not really about specific concepts in mathematics It’s about expanding your ability to think critically and engage your memory Also it’s a good lesson in logistic problem-solving which is why test-taking concepts (ie strategies for reading comprehension) are useful to know Annie Murphy Paul author of Brilliant: The New Science of Smart says in a Timecom article defending standardized testing “By using the test as a learning tool instead of an evaluation instrument we could help students avoid the perils of testing while garnering all its benefits” She goes on to point out statistics on memory and retention that are linked to this kind of testing You can use standardized tests as assessment tools to see how your student is faring in certain subjects By participating in low-stakes (or no-stakes) testing at home it will give your student an idea of how he or she might be faring and grant confidence or demonstrate places that still need some significant work While these tests should not be the be-all and end-all they do assess certain skills very well and can allow you to judge how your homeschooled student is comparing to other students across the nation Unfortunately for some standardized tests are still the main assessment criteria for many colleges In fact there are colleges that simply use a matrix that looks at these test scores and mostly ignore any other application material (no essays no recommendations—just the tests) Though you may not be interested in having your student apply to a place that doesn’t really feel the need to individualize their acceptances the SATs and ACTs are not going away anytime soon It’s imperative that you prepare and learn their tricks In some ways you will be at an advantage because the SAT tries to create situations that can confuse students in a standard curriculum to see if those students can think more comprehensively As your home curriculum is likely more attuned to your student’s needs these fake-outs may be something you can prepare for more specifically—but only if you start working on this years in advance While the evolution of the standardized test demonstrates that there are continual improvements to be made there are still many reasons to approach tests with an attitude of what they can do for your student rather than looking at them as a hurdle to be avoided or overcome About the Author Ryan Hickey is the Managing Editor of Petersons and EssayEdge and is an expert in many aspects of college graduate and professional admissions A

statements; and consulting directly with applicantsWritten by Bibek Debroy | Updated: March 2 2017 5:23 am Top News I have quoted from this book in the past but there is no harm in doing so again This quote is from Alexander Campbell’s The Heart of India published abroad in 1958 The book is “banned” in India The word “ban” is often used loosely This book has never been published or printed in India The ban (Customs notification No 49 dated March 11 1959) is on imports into the country It is an extremely patronising book though that should hardly be a reason for a ban There is a section about a meeting with Vaidya Sharma of the ministry of planning “He (Vaidya Sharma) put away the housing development papers and talked again about the Five-Year Plan ‘We have now entered the period of the second Plan The first Plan built up our food resources; the second Plan will lay the foundations for the rapid creation of heavy industry Delhi as the capital of India will play a big part and we are getting ready to shoulder the burden We are going to build a big central stationery depot with a special railway-siding of its own There will be no fewer than 12 halls each covering 2000 square feet They will be storage halls’ and said Sharma triumphantly ‘we calculate that the depot will be capable of an annual turnover of 1400 tons of official forms forms required for carrying out the commitments of the second Five-Year Plan’” Richard Mahapatra is the Managing Editor and publisher of Down to Earth In the current issue (February 16-28 2017) he writes “Many old-timers gathered around a Murphy Richards transistor in a library would react to the approval of the five-year plan as a grave voice of the newsreader would inform about allocations In colleges the economics professors would read out the new priorities to students and often shyly hint at lucrative academic opportunities and new subjects for applying for scholarships Not going into the details of whether planned development did any good or harm to India the five-year plans were always good experiences” I will not get into the merits/demerits of planned development not only in terms of historical context but also its continued relevance/irrelevance (In view of the Campbell quote perhaps I should have said reverence/irreverence) As students we were reverently taught and studied plan models I don’t know if this reflects my jaundiced view but the charm of plan models probably died out with the Fourth Plan (1969-74) at best the Fifth (1974-78) Once rolling plans (1978-80) got going plan models gathered moss Incidentally the number of equations in any plan model was almost entirely driven by the computing power one could rustle up In our student days we rarely read plan documents and we certainly didn’t read annual reports of the Planning Commission Let me now quote from the 1977-78 Annual Report of the Planning Commission during the rolling plan era: “The Commission has suggested two new developments in the evolution of the country’s planning methodology viz (a) the adoption of the rolling plan system and (b) the preparation of comprehensive area development plans at the block level Year-to-year targets will be set for sectoral outlays and output for major sectors within the Five Year Plan; performance against these targets will be reviewed annually… There is no basis for the apprehensions expressed that the introduction of a Rolling Plan system would mean the abandonment of long-term objectives reducing the commitment of resources for development and freeing the implementing agencies from any accountability for non-achievement of targets The modifications proposed will not mean either the abandonment of perspective planning or the replacement of the discipline of a five-year framework by ad hoc annual decision-making A new 15-year perspective plan will be prepared for charting the longer-term course of development of the economy as a whole The Perspective Plan would provide the framework for investment decisions in long-gestation projects for which a five-year horizon is inadequate and for planning for land use water resources oil and mineral development and manpower” I have refrained from quoting from the decentralised planning sections In hindsight both ideas seem prescient and both have a rationale though Vaidya Sharma wouldn’t have approved Decentralised planning lacks the raw appeal that centralised mathematical models possess Even now students are fascinated by the Oskar Lange kind of idea of a central planning board completely replicating the market through a tatonnement (trial and error) process Note that decentralised planning received lip service since the First Plan (1951-56) — District Development Councils were formed the Planning Commission formulated guidelines for district planning in 1969 A Manual for Integrated District Planning was prepared by the Planning Commission in 2009 The last quote is from that manual: “From the late sixties to the mid-eighties the trend was towards greater centralisation of administration Due to the absence of concerted political and administrative support panchayats had by the late sixties been superseded in most states The formulation of Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) implemented mainly through line departments led to the virtual collapse of the district planning process Though there were several efforts to stem the tide (Dantwala Committee GVK Rao Committee) these were largely unsuccessful” The supercomputers of the 1970s were primitive Forget those in its heydey of modelling the Planning Commission didn’t have access even to mainframes But that remained the aspiration and decentralised planning seemed to replace it in every district with what

Minister Narendra Modi arrived here on Sunday to cement India’s ‘unique and special relationship’ with Bhutan and his thrust to make the ties more effective A grand welcome was accorded to him by the Bhutanese government which rolled out a red carpet and gave a ceremonial guard of honour to him Modi accompanied by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj NSA Ajit Doval and Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh was received at the Paro airport by Bhutanese Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay and several of his Cabinet colleagues The Prime Minister drove down from Paro to Thimphu a distance of about 50 kms traversing through the picturesque mountainous ranges Common people including children in colourful attire lined up most of the road between Paro and Thimphu waving Indian and Bhutanese flags Big

Bhutan was a ‘natural choice’ as his first foreign destination because of the ‘unique and special relationship’ The fact that the Prime Minister chose Bhutan as his first foreign destination assumes significance since China has lately intensified efforts to woo it and establish full- fledged diplomatic ties with Thimphu In his pre-departure statement Modi said relations with Bhutan will be a key foreign policy priority of his government “I am looking forward to my first-ever visit to Bhutan and to nurturing and further strengthening India’s special relations with Bhutan” said Modi before undertaking the trip at the invitation of Bhutan’s King and the Prime Minister “Our relations with Bhutan are unique and especially warm Our historical and cultural linkages make us natural friends
