Testing, the word that every student fears and for good reasons. Testing determines whether
you pass or fail which to some is a life and death situation; but no one should fear testing.
Testing is a good way to show if a person knows what is being taught; now some people give
the argument such as “I'm not a good test taker” or “tests never cover what they should”. This
may be true, but tests are exactly what they sound like a test, a test to show what you know
and where to improve; they're made to improve you as a person and as a student.
Testing's a factor as to how far you will go in the future and what opportunities may be
available. Yes, there will be tests that you would fail it does not mean you will fail at life; if
anything, it will make you a better student. You'll see that bad test grade and you'll start to hate
it you'll never want to see a 21 percent or how ever low you scored again; so, what do you do?
Some will just accept it and not bother with it or you can be part of the students that will grow
from it, study, and get a greater grade on the next one.
Tests are a terrifying thing it doesn’t matter what type of test it could be; it could be something
such as the SAT or even a short quiz on a lesson you’ve been learning for weeks tests are just
intimidating. They're still needed because if you go out there to get a job and have no idea what
you're doing you won't go far. You can't blame the tests; you can only blame yourself; you
could've studied or asked questions on things you weren't sure on; you can never blame the
test only improve yourself and the rest will follow.
