I do not believe that these standardized tests need to occur during a pandemic. There are currently enough stresses on our society, as well as our students. Use the money set aside for these exams and put it into mental health and assistance to help students catch up from last year, as well as any time lost from classes this year - we need more Educational Assistants and mental health counsellors! I am a parent of a grade 12 student as well as a teacher.

It is not right to have 1 standardized test worth 30 percent of the work put in for a semester.

More than just Covid expectations it is such a small snap shot and unreliable means of collecting data! Stop them all together!

Diploma exams are a bunch of @#$$&*%+! They should not exist period! They cause undue stress on “children” who already have enough stress trying to figure life out! This has been a cause of contention for way too long! Stop talking, start listening, if you REALLY do care about the mental wellness of the students,.....

It triggers kids with aniexty and one test shouldn’t determine if kids are worthy to get a good grade

I see how stressed out students are. Many are dealing with sick family members. Many are being quarantined due to a positive case around them. These tests are the least of our worries right now.
