LENOIR — Caldwell County school officials say they won’t be using a mock test that offended some students this week.
School spokeswoman Libby Brown says a quiz called “The Chitling Test” was used in an advanced psychology class at a Lenoir high school that focuses on “individual differences.”
Brown says the test was not graded and was more of an exercise that was followed by a class discussion.
She says the teacher’s choice of the name “The Chitling Test” and its content offended two African-American students.
Brown said Superintendent Steve Stone thinks the test was inappropriate. The school system is investigating the matter.
Stone met Thursday with several parents, NAACP members and African-American clergy.
