According to the Auditor General of Pennsylvania, “between 2015 and 2021, Pennsylvania will have spent nearly $100 million,” on standardized tests. And EdWeek reported that standardized testing costs states well over a billion dollars every year. While some states today are delivering a majority of tests online, the cost of testing is still much higher in the U.S. than in countries around the world.
