just a random poll
Right now in the elementary schools even there is a pressure of standardized tests. And in elementary school they use that as a deciding factor as to whether you pass or fail the ENTIRE grade. In other words you can be a A+ student all year and if you fail the standardized test you fail the grade. That's pretty deep and to put that much pressure on a third grader, in my opinion, isn't right.

I don't think students should be judged by one test at the end of the year. Its like none of the work you do all year means anything that way. Teachers should make a comparison between what we know at the beginning of the year and how we do at the end of the year and give us some credit for our progress.

I pity you poor third graders Laughing
