    These tests are useless. They do not measure a students ability nor do they provide meaningful results that help educators understand why a child may be struggling. If differentiated learning is provided , then assessments should be differentiated as well!!! School Districts and parents need to reach out to officials in power and put an end to these money making meaningless tests!!!!
