  • Yes they should.

    It's really stupid because I, as a student, work hard durine the school year to maintain all As and Bs and at the end of the year, we get tested and we could possibly fail it and not be able to pass the class. This should be eliminated. R r

  • Standardized testing teaches you how to take tests, however it does not prepare you for the adult world.

    Standardized testing limits critical thinking skills and educational quality on students in the first place, not all people have standardized minds. Also, it does not teach you how to pay taxes, buy a house, get a car, apply for life or car insurance. It puts an unhealthy amount of stress on educators and students. Its pointless and a waste of time.

  • Get it Banned!

    These tests that we take are pointless. They only really show what the teacher taught us. So if we did bad it's not on out grade it's on the teachers. So why have it?? Also it freaks out kids? Why should kids in elementary school be given this?? Too Hard!

  • Yes Yes y

    Yes, standardized tests should be mostly eliminated. There are times when a standardized test might be helpful, such as placing someone in a particular class or subject. However, most teachers I know say that they are often merely teaching to the test, hoping their students will do well so it reflects back well on them as teachers. They don't feel this gives students what they need.

  • Test should be elimenated

    Some kids get so nervous before the test that they throw up, get headaches and get sick and sometimes they stop taking the test because they are way to scared and having sick children is the worse so don't let a test affect your health. Soooooo NO MORE TESTS !!!

  • Kids are FREAKED OUT by standardized tests!!!!!!!!!!

    Standardized tests like the SATs or PARCC are absolutely mortifying to a child. First time especially. And now putting them on computers, the kids who cannot type correctly are going to fail and their teacher's salary and grade as an educator are in jeopardy! BAN ALL OF THE STANDARDIZED TESTS!

  • It goes agianst our 14th amendment

    Without standardized testing, their would be no way to compare schools, and assure that they were meeting their constitutional standards.
    The fourteenth constitutional amendment requires fair and equal treatment to all, under protection of the law. The Supreme Court Case Brown vs. Board of education in 1954, Officially legislated that the 14th amendment applied to all education laws. Therefore, It is our constitutional right to receive an equal education.

    If there is no way to compare schools, there is no way for individuals to know whether an individual is receiving a substandard education, vandalising our constitutional right. Without standardized testing there would be no form of comparison and equality would not be possible.

  • No it shouldn't.

    I believe that standardized should not be eliminated because it helps students progress in their educational career. It also shows what level of intelligence students have and how they work through specific problems. It is beneficial to students because it shows how much knowledge they have collected throughout the years of their education.

  • We need this for a good reason

    With out standardized testing we can't know how students are doing. We also need it to see were teachers need to improve and strengthen their teaching. This way we can strengthen our teachers and students in many ways. If we get rid of testing we get rid of a huge part of teaching. That is my supporting argument on testing.

  • Kids need standardized tests.

    Standardized Testing allows schools to compare students taking the same test. NOT all teachers teach to the test. Many teachers simply teach their class then hand out the test. In lower grades it gives students experience taking the standardized tests so that tests like the ACT or SAT are not their first test.

  • Standardized test show how smart students can be.

    They can show if the student was paying attention in class and if the student can retain the information learned in class. It shows how well a teacher taught over the class and how well that teacher motivated her students. Overall, standardized tests are good and they should not be eliminated.

  • Standardized Testing Is Better Than Nothing

    The alternative to eliminating standardized testing, is having no testing that cross refrences learning across the nation. If school systems no longer have to meet specific standards, then curriculum could be different from city to city and state to state. We need some way to measure learning, even if it's a bit sloppy, to at least give us an average idea of how successfully children are learning certain topics.
