Standardized tests should be used as one measure to gauge student performance. In order for testing to be effective in measuring student performance, the teachers must use the test results to modify instruction to attend to the strengths and gaps in student learning. A study cited by John Hattie in Visible Learning concluded that to "argue that states adopting strong accountability policies significantly improved student achievement is not convincing until substantial improvements in schooling, conditions and practices occur." Schools must understand the differences between norm referenced and criterion referenced tests to achieve a balanced approach to accountability.by Jane Harris
