Students take multiple standardized tests throughout the year, which can have a tremendous impact on the school and students in positive and negative ways. Since this topic is controversial, this study will be exploring both the positive and negative impacts that standardized testing could have on schools and students. The basis of the research will be focusing on two 7th grade students at Valley Middle School in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The study will evaluate and analyze the two student’s progress using various representations obtained from the results of the standardized tests. This data will be used to observe first-hand how teachers and administrators positively use the information to implement changes in the classroom. As a result of this, teachers can utilize this data to formulate an action plan to implement into the classroom to support not only the two students, but the classroom as a whole.
