What is the Purpose of Standardized Testing?

Standardized tests are educational tools used by Lincoln Lutheran administrators, educators, and students to enhance a student's individual learning process. They also serve to indicate strengths and weaknesses and illustrate how your student compares to other students on a national level. Post-secondary institutions also use standardized test scores (typically the ACT or SAT) for admission purposes as well as merit-based financial aid.
