The author appeals to emotion in the heading “Placement tests are “hidden standards”. The heading explains that if a student misses just one year of mathematics then passing the college placement exam will be difficult.

They rush through the curriculum, they take their senior year off, they take a placement test - and have to take remedial math”. He understands that if students are failing they have to recover quickly and it may cause them to not understand the concept and they may end up taking “remedial math” because they were “pushed to hard and too fast”.
