The aim of taking a child to an education institution is to foster holistic growth and development of the child. Therefore, it is important to keep on monitoring the progress of the child. Standardized testing have been employed in our education institution to measure the progress of the child academically and in other areas of growth. Following Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligence, the best education will be that which will foster holistic growth of the child and foster growth and development in the specific intelligence of the child. Intelligence is the ability of the child to take in and process information or to learn in an efficient manner. Intelligence therefore relates to the the potential of the child for learning of processing information. Standardized testing should therefore be regularly used in K-12 in order to measure the progress the child is making.
