According to WikipediA, this immage was gotten up and spread about by some Indiana University students many many years Ago (1890). For the better education of the students of to-day, it is transcribed below.
Contains offencive language.
A popular reminiscence going around the image blogging platform Tumboleer about overhead projectors has reminded me of my favorites.
I feel I should apologize shortly for not posting. So there, I just did. Maybe.
At work, some of my job is checking work done by people and firms the State contracts with.
Not a porno.
I found this antient (1914, despite what the cover says) yearbook from Colgate University:
Probably everyone in the United States who went to school knows what a standardized test is. One of those fill-in-the-circles affairs that returns a percentile rank. Currently they are controversial on account of their potential use in teacher evaluations.
I found this certificate for an apparently long discontinued test, the National Educational Development Test:
The Science Research Associates that Lyle Spencer signed for had just been bought by IBM at the time, according to Wikipedia. Per a paper in ERIC, it was administered at least as late as 1993, but probably not much after since there is next to nothing on the Internet about it. Also per that paper, it took until 1982 to delete “gender, racial or ethnic bias”. Shades of the oarsman-regatta question once on the SAT?
Anyway, I notice this particular paper didn’t bother to tell the awardee what their performance was, just that it was “outstanding”.
Everyone who has ever taken a high school or college course in chemistry, biology or kindred sciences unquestionably remembers the, sometimes lurid, always present warnings against doing things, normally, well, normal, but dangerous in a laboratory.1
Wear your safety glasses/googles.

This last one gave me an idea:
Back in the 1970s (based on the cover art), three companies decided to come together (merge or acquire): Knowledge Aid, Filmstrip House and Moreland-Latchford. They formed:
In the continuing series of odd textbook and other educational matter, Time and Beyond:
Other than being published by Allyn and Bacon with a copyright of 1978, I cannot find anything on this online. Was it about learning to tell time? Time management? Time itself? New Math? Time may tell, if anyone has the time to find out and put it online, or takes the time to comment.
I will not make any more “time” jokes, since the indisputed king of them is Cliff Johnson of “3 in Three” fame. I will ask: Why is there a hole in the center of the clock face, where the stems of the hands would go? Why is the stem of the pocketwatch off centered? Shouldn’t it be divided in half? For that matter, shouldn’t the number 12 at the top?
I would like to know – seriously – what the “beyond” referenced by the title is.
Are you a grade-school teacher? Want to troll your students?
Why don’t you use…
