In this video, Dan Rather examines the standardized testing industry, interviewing college graduates who worked as temporary test scorers for the few large companies that produce millions of standardized tests and then hire workers to score them in factory-like conditions, and Todd Farley, a man who has worked in the industry for fifteen years.
