College students discuss helpfulness of standardized tests
On Tuesday, the Nebraska Department of Education released its NeSa scores. Local college students are beginning the next step in their education.
Those tests are aimed at preparing students for college courses.
The state scores show that students scored substantially higher this year compared to last year in math and reading.
But when we asked college freshmen students if the standardized tests are beneficial we got mixed results.
"They actually help prepare for classes as in what are your strengths, what are your weaknesses," said Derrek Braught-Worley.
"In some ways they weren't all what you would learn and you would like to learn more in some of them," Alyssa Cheek said.
"Some ways in how they taught it was confusing to me so I had to learn myself," said Dominick Boyles.
The students also tell News 5 the standardized subject tests they took in high school better prepared them to make a career choice.
