Yes. Tests are a good way to measure how well a student has absorbed material over the course of the class. I understand that some people do not test well, so I think there should be alternate ways of testing to account for this, however testing as a whole should remain an integral part of coursework.
Kids shouldn't take tests because it gives them anxiety. Once they get anxiety from the tests they could maybe not answer the questions they already know. It is really dumb about taking tests. Also some tests aren't equally created. There are some bias sometimes. My point is tests shouldn't be taken
The average test makes kids fail most of the time. In Big Nate's 2nd book, He usually burns up his report cards and his tests. Other kids just do one side or none. That is why in my opinion, kids should not to any tests at all costs. Even the writing tests and state tests.
The reason why test are not effective is because it makes lots of kids nervous. And i think that test like the STARR test puts to much pressure and makes kids just shut down. So, that means we don't need to do any tests. So we can let the kids relax
Tests are not effective for kids because they cause anxiety or pressure, and when kids have pressure they end up not concentrating on the tests and end up getting a bad score. As a kid, I am saying that tests are one of the worst things of my life. That's what I'm saying.
I truly believe that tests are not effective because some people suffer from test anxiety, and they may know the material but because of their anxiety do terrible on the test. I also believe that not all tests are created equally, I truly believe their is a bias in some tests.
