Standardized Testing Why it doesn't belong in science classes

Creativity is the basis of science, and standardized testing does not encourage students to be creative.

Hands-on learning encourages students to solve problems creatively and look at problems from a new perspective.

A hands-on curriculum allows students to practice team work, observe how science works in reality, and practice what they learn in class.

Test taking doesn't allow for trial and error, while science is built on being able to learn from your trials and errors in order to solve problems.

Standardized testing forces students to learn information in one way. A more hands on curriculum would allow students to see information in more than one format.
