I think it's a combination of standarized testing, and performance based assessments that correctly measure a student's knowledge or ability. The ideal measure of a student's knowledge or ability would be a test that makes students use critical thinking skills, show their work, and use recall skills. But, as most teachers know, there is no such test, darn it. Ideally though, education should be moving away from a "test and results" focus and more toward actually focusing on their students, and preparing them for the real world versus preparing them on how to take a test.
