Testing students in a particular skill, such as language, has always been a high stakes effort and is often done with large, standardized assessments. Examinees take these tests to pass a course, complete a degree, obtain a license, etc. Schools want to show gains and performance as well as maintain and increase funding. However, standardized tests can provide more information than just performance. They can often provide useful data to inform classroom instruction.
