Standardized Testing By State

Standardized Tests Are Here to Stay

By now, there isn’t a U.S. household with school-age children that hasn’t experienced a standardized test, be it national assessments like the SAT-9, SAT-10, MAT-8, Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS), or TerraNova Assessment Series (CTBS/5 and CA STAR), or state tests like the FCAT (Florida), TAKS (Texas), and MCAS (Massachusetts).

While each state’s implementation and use of standardized tests has its critics, most educational experts agree that testing is a measure of how well students comprehend and apply knowledge. They also agree that high standards are a worthy goal. So, until someone comes up with a more effective measure of accountability, it looks as though standardized tests are here to stay.

With Time4Learning, students can improve critical skills through structured lessons and activities that correlate to educational standards that standardized tests are built around. And with a student-paced curriculum, children can move through education grade levels faster and accelerate learning.
