       In the State of Florida, students have to stress and worry about FSAs and/or EOCs. These State tests aren't very beneficial and helpful to many students. Our goal now is to cancel all FSAs and EOCs. We want to cancel these tests because they're more beneficial ways to pass grade levels. Students should be able to pass the grade level according to their grades and parents decisions because State tests could cause students to freak out and not do their best. 

       Many people think that State tests are made for teachers to help students succeed and show how well the schools teach us students. There are other ways to grade students performances and how they do in the school year. To begin, FSAs and EOCs do not accurately reflect on student's true knowledge and potential. In this website, inservice.ascd.org , it lists 15 reasons on why State testing isn't beneficial. For example, it states "Standardized tests occur in an artificial learning environment: they’re timed, you can’t talk to a fellow student, you can’t ask questions, you can’t use references or learning devices, you can’t get up and move around." Next, Penn State College has wrote a paper on why state testing like SATs and ACTs aren't helpful. What makes it different for FSAs and EOCs? In this link there is information on the paper Penn State College wrote news.psu.edu

       To conclude, we don't agree with standardized testing in Florida. It isn't helpful nor beneficial to students.
