Writer's Block: Connecting the dots

How do you feel about standardized tests? Do you think they accurately indicate a student's knowledge or ability?


Well, I have always been against tests and exams of any kind because they always made me fall apart. I used to (back in the 80s when schools and universities used to base all grading on exams) wish for grading to be partially based on coursework, projects, essays and so on and/or that exams be open-book and so more real-world. Then, in the 2000s (ages after I left school) I hear that they mainly grade on coursework and so on. However, qualifications are now considered to easy because they used to be impossibly hard and emphasise perfect memories over real-world "know where to look it up" skills. I dunno, really. I know the system I was schooled within was overly stressful and difficult for me, although I used to love exams before about age 10 so maybe my difficulty with them was developing along with the MS.
