Okay, so today my school started with those standardized tests that we have to take every year. Drives me nuts!!! They drive me crazy because I'm worried I'm not gonna do good or fail cuz you can't really study for those tests! You just have to wing it. As a girl who is very very (call me a nerd) worried about my grades. I always do my homework, I always study for tests, etc. Then they give us these stupid tests that judge us by our knowledge and what we learned, and we can't even study?!? That is injustice to people who take these tests!! They tell us to be responsible and study then they tell us we can't! Seriously? I just can't wait till the tests are over!!

Do standardized tests determine who will be successful?As a former music teacher I noticed that a week or two before standardized tests all classes/recess were cancelled to cram test ?'s and answers to the test. Does this really prove what kids have learned or how successful they will be in life?

How do YOU feel about standardized testing? My main interest is how many parents use the test scores to determine school placement for their child (and how they achieve that placement), but feel free to talk about any aspect of standardized testing.
