School is officially out (for most kids) and summertime fun is on the horizon. Our kids cranked out another school year full of projects, homework, and testing.

But, could the adults pull off the work that their kids did this year?

School isn't what we grew up with

It might not have been that long ago but school was a lot different for most of us back in the day. Technology, especially cell phones, was nowhere near the level that they are today.

Back then, kids had to be creative in how they cheated on their tests. Some kids did the ol' bandaid trick (writing the answers super small on the inside of a bandaid), others had signals (like coughing) with other students to get through a quiz together, and some kids even opened up their books to study.

What a concept.

But, how would some of us fare in the education system today? Do we have what it takes to pass the standardized testing our kids must pass?

We pulled ten questions from ISAT from all around the web including a teacher's PowerPoint study guide. How many of them can you answer correctly?
