I agree that standardized tests are limited in what they can tell you about students. But they do tell you some things. Any test will have faults, but the alternative of having no way at all of evaluating how are kids are pacing isn't acceptable either. We need to a) do our best to create tests that cover the most important skills for success and b) look at these test scores directionally but not rely solely on them. I saw that you mentioned in one of your other posts that you learned how well a teacher taught you to write after you took the English CSET (see link below). Is it fair to say that this test was useful to you in evaluating your past school experience?
