Diana Laufenberg: How to learn? From mistakes
Come to think of it. Test should be done primarily have an "objective" reference point that teachers can use as input to their teaching and use as part of evaluation. As a teacher their own teaching would have to embrace continuous learning and adaptation, and to do that properly you need good feed back. The more "facts" the better. In that context I think standardised tests would be great. As feedback to the teachers, not to the students. But the tests would probably look different than they do today.

Some great comments in this thread. Reading them made me review my thoughts on the problem as well as the people commenting. In my domain of Software Development I there is a fundamental amount of know how that you have to just know. Some of it you may be able to memorise without understanding it. For me that has never worked. In school I always battled the most trying to memorise things as required. For others that is easy. I enjoy my field because it is mostly about balancing concerns with room for creative and beautiful solutions. I have taught grads specialised commercial software development and boggled at the daft tests they were given. In my book standard tests can only cover the basic skills. Motivation, Curiosity, Tenacity, Ambition, and Peer Inspiration are vastly more important. I can add one developer to a team that passes all tests, but with the wrong values that one person might screw up the whole project. I have similar experience from my brief time in the military.
