What purpose do state mandated standardized tests really serve in assessing students with disabilities/exceptional learning needs?
State mandated standardized tests serve a vital purpose in assessing students with disabilities or exceptional learning needs. I believe that these mandated tests can provide a structured format by analyzing the way an individual student absorbs educational material. These tests can be used to measure progress on both an individual and student body level. The students with disabilities or exceptional learning needs can be identified and assisted after the results of the tests have been researched.
