Describe how standardization relates to the results of the written exam.

Standardization is the process of making the testing and scoring procedures uniform and objective. A standardized test will have questions in which only one answer is plausible. If the student receives poor results on the written exam because their opinion was no the answer the test was looking for, then the test is considered not to be standard. In order for the results to resemble a standardized test, both the questions and the answers must be objective, meaning questions will solely be based on fact and not opinion.
