Standardized Testing Pros And Cons

Satisfactory Essays
FairTest talks about how schools use standardized testing the wrong way and are causing many negative impacts. It causes the curriculum to narrow as well as make teachers teach to the test which thus drives them out of their profession. The stress on schools and teachers to raise the average grade is increasing. Because these tests don’t accurately take into account any other things but that one test, it is causing students to lower self esteem due to lower grades and therefore, dropping out. I plan on using this source to support why standardized testing should be reduced by mentioning how it affects how students are taken into account.
