Description

Standardized tests are any form of test that is scored in a “standard” or consistent manner, allowing it to compare the relative performance of individual or groups of students. This presentation will discuss the evolution of standardized testing and its impact on our education system. In the past, these tests focused on the ability of the student and how they are able to retain knowledge. As of now, these standards have shifted and established themselves in changing curriculum and intent, causing negative impacts on students (e.g., stress, loss of curiosity, boredom). In short, the standard of testing has taken the love of learning out of the students.
