    Relax, It Is Only A Test! Imagine a world where the future of a particular child all depends on what they receive on a single exam score. Then, imagine having that score analyzed, compared, and shared with school officials statewide. In reality, this is happening, and in many times, for the wrong purpose and has largely contributed to falsely claimed assumptions of students due to the inaccuracy of these scores.
