Colleges want to know what type of work an individual can do, and how they perform.

The truth is that standardized testing is VERY helpful, and every student that takes some sort of standardized test will benefit. Some evidence that proves this statement correct is, research shows schools that teach a curriculum based around state and federal standards usually have “smarter” students(better educated), because they take and perform well on standardized
