From the article:
“The research against these tests is fairly damning. “MIT neuroscientists found that improving the math scores of a group of eighth grade students in Boston had little influence on their … ability to apply reasoning,” the author writes. Most standardized tests aren’t objective, don’t measure a student’s ability to think, and don’t reliably predict how well a kid will do in the workplace. So what’s good about them? They’re relatively cheap to create, easy to administer, and they yield data.”
