A standardized test is any form of test that (1) requires all test takers to answer the same questions, or a selection of questions from common bank of questions, in the same way, and that (2) is scored in a “standard” or consistent manner, which makes it possible to compare the relative performance of individual students or groups of students. While different types of tests and assessments may be “standardized” in this way, the term is primarily associated with large-scale tests administered to large populations of students, such as a multiple-choice test given to all the eighth-grade public-school students in a particular state. -http://edglossary.org/standardized-test/

Are you referring to tests like ACT or SAT?

I think it depends on how schools use them. On the one hand, GPAs aren't as reliable a measure of student achievement as they once were because of grade inflation. But standardized tests are biased against low income students, non white students, and non Christian students. I think in conjunction with other measures, like personal essays and interviews, they can be a good piece of the puzzle, but often higher education institutions put too much weight on ACT and SAT scores.
