Standardized test are somewhat helpful but not as much as they should be. They do not measure the ability to think or create in any field. The standardized test are reliable but only if you get the same score twice. One person’s score may vary from day to day depending on test taking conditions or that person’s mental or emotional state.

They have a multiple choice section but multiple choice tests do not measure the ability to write, to use math, to make meaning from text when reading, to understand scientific methods or reasoning. They also do not measure thinking skills or assess what people can do on real-world tasks.
