Standardized testing is one of the easiest ways to test a massive population of students. Despite the ease of standardize testing they are an ineffective method for testing a student body. Standardized test only target one type of learner and are tailored for the middle class. If a student is not good at memorizing information and then transferring it onto a test they will not score well on a standardized test. Standardized tests make students feel as if they are not unique. While standardized tests are an easy way to hold teachers accountable for their teaching, they systematically destroy a child’s creativity.
