A standardized test is merely administered under standardized or controlled conditions that specify the children's responses to all questions. The advantage of the test, if properly used, is that it can discard biases in assessment of individual children thereby permitting comparison based on standards. This test is part of the federal NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND LAW. But have you heard that this same legislation has posted controversies including cheating scandals in public schools
that were noted in Pennsylvania and Atlanta? The policy itself has triggered cheating and now, it is elevating. It deduces that proper action must be done because this must not be tolerated.
