We’ve all been there. Two answers on a reading multiple choice test that both could be correct based on your justification. But there isn’t a place to write your justification on the answer document, just a place to bubble ONE answer. The graders don’t care about your justification. So how do we know which one the test writers say is right, while both are justifiable? We don’t, and students everywhere suffer. They have an opinion with a valid justification, and the graders say it’s wrong......

Why?!? This is not right. Students are forced in believing in others opinions just to pass a test or to get good grades. Students are suffering from these questions, and it can affect their grades, which can eventually effect what schools they are accepted too, all because of a strict test. So, what can be done?

We need a place to justify our answers on answer-document based tests, and a more open way of grading these tests. Everyone has their own beliefs, and they should not suffer in school for it! Please sign this petition to help students grades!
