It is a stressful time for all, as teachers give comprehensive test or unit assessments, and as students preparing\reviewing the last five or so months of learning to test high in the finals.

The arguments of the test are that of both good and bad with the main reason to keep them is for the students that have a work ethic problem over being uneducated, but those who do not know the material but have turned in all the assignments will have to suffer in their lack of knowledge. The other arguments come down to the thought of standards that we have held for years vs. the newer level of knowledge that we have gained from the year. The arguments are the basis for the fight over finals, what do you have to add?
