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?

I think that standardized testing has it's benefits and if faults.  I think that they are necessary mile-markers so that teachers and students know where a student is at and what they need to work on. There is a simple fact to be considered though, and that is that some students simply don't test well. In this way I don't think that standardized tests are able to accurately measure the ability of all students. Because of this I don't think that a student's ability to pass or fail should be dependent on their standardized test scores, but rather on how they do cumulatively.
