Currently a student’s academic success is shown by standardized measures for the most part. Many students are not good test takers but do well on school assignments. Unfortunately, class assignments do not carry much weight for final course grades. Standardized tests seem to be the tell-tale of if a student will get good or bad grades and what college he or she will go to, if so desired. This petition is to get people to rally together to stop school districts from using mostly standardized scores and formal testing to show what a student knows. Students know much more than what a single test score shows. Students should be given the change to show their knowledge based on a variety of outcomes, not just test scores. This petition is to get school districts to use a variety of measures that are weighted equally, to show students achievements and not just formal test scores.
