Standardized tests attempt to take an “across the board” measurement of a student’s educational ability.
Most of the institutions have a computer adaptive response system that scans the answer paper of the candidate and produces the score within minutes. announced the 'No Child Left Behind Act' in 2003, cities in the U. have started using standardized tests as a major part of their educational curriculum.
Only the writing part (if any) of the standardized tests is checked by an examiner. Supporters of standardized tests believe that these tests are highly accountable and reliable as they judge the candidates on a common platform across states and nations.
The educational system in the United States has been using standardized tests to evaluate the performance of students.
However, there has been an ongoing debate among scholars, parents, and teachers on the effectiveness of these tests.
