spell check Spel Chek Ok On Hi Skool Test
Oregon seventh-graders and high-school students will now be able to use their computer’s spell check when taking STATE writing tests. 

Their writing is judged on six traits, including organization and sentence fluency. Conventions – which include spelling, capitalization and similar features which spell check and can detect and fix – is the single most important element in a student’s score, with conventions score counted for twice as much as any other trait.
Among the reasons for the change:  “the increasing use of computers with spell checkers for communication in the work place, college, postsecondary training, and the military. ”

In other words, the rest of the world uses spell check; why shouldn’t out students get to?

Listen to what KOOL listeners had to say.  (BTW, we spell KOOL with a K on purpose)
