Well said. When those against standardized tests just focus on "teach to the test" they are missing the bigger pictures. Yes, you could do harm if all you did was look at standardized tests. But if you use them as a tool you'll be better informed than if you don't. It would be like if a doctor just looked at your temperature to determine your health - that would be a bad idea. But that doesn't mean that taking your temperature is a bad idea. It's a very useful tool that tells a lot... but you also need to look at many other important factors. The same is true with education - we need to look at standardized tests, but not in a vacuum.by Carol K.
