This is exactly what the test is supposed to do...

To me this is a sign of a valid test. The idea of a good test is to separate out the entire population of students, to discriminate their abilities. The fact that only a small percentage of students at University High School 'exceeded' is good news. Remember this is a school full of high-performing students, but by no means is this a school full of high-performing math students- nor should it be.
