A student’s mental/physical health and future as an authentic learner is most at risk here. No matter how many cries from multiple students are heard, they continue to be silenced. Simply put, all standardized testing should be abolished for they are hurting students both in and out of classrooms. As students we deserve the ability to access authentic learning, however, with standardized testing heavily relied on, students are deprived of this interaction.

This does affect the results and not reflect the very nature of the impact of school. Therefore, only a study that uses cognitive tasks that is common and equally faced by both school going and non-school going children can give valid results to understand the impact of schooling.
