Standardized tests are exams given to students at the end of each academic year. The results are used to determine whether or not students move to the next grade level. As our society places more emphasis on education, many school districts, along with the federal government, are using standardized tests to ensure that students receive the best education possible, and we should support this.

First, these tests are given statewide and nationwide, thereby setting a strong standard for all schools to follow. In order to advance, students are required to achieve a minimum score that shows they have acquired the basic, necessary skills of their level. Teachers must therefore emphasize the appropriate material or face the possibility that their students will not pass. This pressure nearly guarantees that students, regardless of environment or background, receive a standard, quality education.

In addition, with these exams, schools become more accountable for the success of their students. By averaging the scores of students, the quality of education of different schools can be compared. With this information, state and federal governments can identify those schools with exceptional results and reward them accordingly as well as identify those performing poorly and offer the necessary aid or take other appropriate actions to help them improve.

Finally, the results of these exams can be used to provide help to those students who need it most. Simply moving children into the next grade level because of age and not ability has long been a staple of most academic institutions. This social promotion needs to end. With these tests, promotion to the next level will be only for those students who pass and show the necessary ability to move forward while those who don’t pass will stay behind to receive more assistance.

The article states that it is a good idea to use standardize exams to ensure that the students get the best education that possible and provides three reasons of support. However, the professor explains that these tests are not a good tool to test the students and opposes each of the author’s reasons.

First, the reading claims that these test are the same in all the country and so the students in all states are taken the same test. The professor refutes this point by saying these test are not a good standard to evaluate the students ability in all places and using these kind of test decrease the teacher’s freedom to teach. According to professor as the schools are compared to each other by these exams, the teachers have to teach just something that they are told and it is not a good standard because schools in different part of a society have to use an appropriate training technics to help the students to help them learn better.

Second, the reading avers that schools become more accountable for the students success. However the professor declare that students are not study in a same school or in a same conditions. He also states students who live in rough places do not get the same education as the students in big cities. He argues that these test do not consider the students and their environmental situations and are not a proper standard.

Third, the article posits that students who cannot pass the test and does not get the minimum requirement to pass the test will remain in the same level. The professor opposes this point by explaining that students have different backgrounds. He contends that some students may have some problems such as becoming ill and it is not a good to evaluate their ability just by a test and make them to stay in a same level.
