yes, we need some objective measures comparable across broad segments of the student population, and while no test is perfect, research has shown that even "imperfect" standardized tests correlate positively with important outcomes in life (college completion, steady employment, reduced risky behaviors, etc.). However, if we are trying to measure school performance (as per the question), and not student performance, then we need to evaluate the "value added" by the school, or basically if students at a school are growing in academic performance at a higher or lower rate than students at other schools that entered at the same level than they did. If not, we risk exclusionary tactics!by Marco
