While the debate continues on whether standardized testing should be done away with or not, there is a group of scholars that believe the tests should be made harder.

According to The Atlantic, there are those who think that there should be fewer state mandated exams, but they should be made harder. They propose that instead of having just multiple choice questions, the tests should also require students to answer open-ended questions. These questions would make students answer the questions and back up their answer with evidence.
