Are course-specific exit exams better for students and teachers than cumulative exit exams?
Yes. The proposed testing revision in Texas makes sense. By assigning course-specific exams, teachers can delve more deeply into their own subject matter to help prepare students for the test, and the material on the test is more relevant for students.

No. Cumulative exit exams are preferable; students should be able to do well on these exams, as many of them test basic material every high school graduate should know.
