I accept. I will make my arguments brief.

Contentions

The reason why high schools give tests for high schoolers so they can pass high school is because they check to see if they are smart enough to be freed into the real world. No one wants an ignorant person to graduate and mindlessly venture out and live forever in search of a college or job.

I will state some premises and a conclusion.

P1) Tests like these are to test if one has learned enough to pass high school.
P2) If a person who would get a lower than acceptable test score got to pass high school (especially extremely low, in this case), they would have to work much harder to search for a college or job.
C) Tests are helpful for finding out who will and who won't be able to graduate, go to college and get a job.

Studies show that college acceptance may only be based on how well you do on SATs and other tests. The correlation between SAT scores and college acceptance is evident. [1] [2]



Conclusion

As you can see, the high school tests are there for helping with college and university acceptance. Not only this, but it helps to ensure whether or not the students have been focusing on what they have learnt.
