Standardized Test

What is a standardized test?

A standardized test is a test that measures the same knowledge, skills, and abilities in all students at each grade level. Standardized tests are objective and consistent, meaning that the questions will be similar across different test-takers. A standardized test is one where the questions, answer choices, time allotment, and format are all fixed in advance.

Standardized tests can be administered to a large number of examinees or candidates at precisely the same time and place without any need for invigilators (supervisors). The term “standardization” refers not only to such consistent procedures but also that they lead assessors towards more reliable results.
