The modern view of academic ability is based on the concept that people have a multitude of interests, and that there are common methods for investigating those interests. Therefore, people do not need to decide the direction of their studies in advance. Instead, they can foster skills such as gathering data, mathematical analysis, and critical thinking.
According to this concept, it would be nonsense to look at all known history and ask what percentage of that history a person knows. Nor does it follow that the purpose of education is to standardize the content of the “textbook” in advance and then master the standardized content.
In other words, the content of academic skills becomes a process and becomes meta-academic, and the target of adaptation of those meta-academic skills is different for each person.
Under this view of academics, all entrance exams must be AO (Admissions Office) exams. Because if there are a million people, there are a million different things each person is working on. Because there is. No single standard test can assess what every person is working on.
