The Standardized Based Assessment is not a true example of a student’s full ability of what they have learned as a whole in school. You don’t get an immediate response on how you did and what you missed. Students are spending time taking a test when they could be learning. Also, a student could have had a fight with their parents and may not be as focused as they could be. Another bad thing about the SBA is that some kids don’t try as hard as they could during the test and the school/district get a bad “grade” for it.
