Eliminating Standardized Testing: One Test Does Not Fit All

This petition had 67 supporters

Every year, thousands of students across the United States spend countless hours preparing for the SAT or ACT, hoping to achieve a perfect score. These standardized tests allow for an easy comparison among students when applying for colleges, but perhaps there is a better solution. Eliminating standardized testing would reduce stress in students, encourage more creativity, and allow colleges to more accurately determine a student’s aptitude. 

If the SAT/ACT were no longer administered, education would gain a newfound respect from students, and there would be more focus on real-world problem solving. The most effective option for a better outlook on a student’s life would be to take the focus off standardized testing, and move it to the aspects of the real-world that a multiple choice test cannot measure. One test does not fit all.

Please sign if you also believe that tests such as the SAT and ACT should be eliminated.
