Standardized testing fails

New York Teacher

My oldest granddaughter was in 7th grade this year and the younger one was in 4th. My daughter has only once received the grades her daughter received on the state tests. So what is the use of them? The teachers have to waste a ton of time preparing for them and the kids get stressed about taking them, so what is the point? I never believed in them.

My daughter did well in school all year long. Every year when she took standardized tests (we did get the results at the end of the school year), she did terribly. They are not an indication of how a child is learning.
