The total and relentless amount of testing has had a very negative impact on my son’s self-esteem. There is just far too much time spent preparing for and taking tests. My son’s anxiety goes up every test, and after taking a test, he comes home convinced that he isn’t very smart. I need my son to be learning in class, feeling good about what he learned, and not preparing for standardized tests over and over again.
