Abstract/Description:
This paper offers insight pertaining to the effects, both the positives and negatives, of standardized testing in education. Following the recent reform in education, through programs such as America’s Choice and Common Core, the emphasis on standardized testing has shown a devaluation in the higher level students and an emphasis on both lower and mid-level students. This paper also presents information that shows why standardized testing is negatively impacting public education, instead of elevating it. As the deflation in performance increases, the moral amongst teachers and students sharply decreases, so does their mental health. Along with the national perspective in education, this paper compares how many foreign nations have approached, and succeeded in their education systems. This paper is comprised of information, statistics and professional insight on the effects of standardized testing; gathered from a wide variety of peer-reviewed and government sources.
