The purpose for refining "Standardized testing is unfair and a waste of money" was to make a good thesis statement. A title is a different thing . A strong title should describe your paragraph and be fairly short. 

I would recommend something like "Standardized Testing: Ineffective and Costly"

 

Obviously this is your paper and you shouldn't take anything I say word for word but I'm trying to give you some ideas.

 

Hope it helps!

The standardized testing is unfair and a waste of valuable time that will never be a part of the school curriculum. There are many people who can argue strongly on the primary argument that standardized tests are not fair, and they are a struggle for everyone, especially young children today. And it causes us to take more mental health days than ever. On a regular test, all students answer precisely the same questions. These answers are always provided in multiple choice forms of foundation, and each question has only one answer that's correct. The tests reward students who are ready for the test and by answering quickly and to answer questions that don't demand much more thinking. The tests don't assess the flexibility to think creatively. The tests don't assess the flexibility of the student schedules. These tests are also written in a manner that assumes all students know the material and are exposed to many personal questions that make people uncomfortable. Plus, it shows some of their background. ‘For decades, critics have complained that several standardized tests are useless and unnecessary because the questions require a collection of important data and also should show their skills likely to be processed as a rich kid from a wealthy and privileged background’ from  Kohn.

It is certainly a powerful thesis statement but you need facts to back it up. I'm sure many schools teach things in their curriculum that will appear on standardized exams.

I'm thinking something along the lines of "Standardized testing has been used to analyze a student's comprehension of a subject but, it is becoming futile because it doesn't completetly examine a student's thinking." 

 

Hope it helps!

I did a rhetorical speech on standardized testing. It was named "Standardized Tests Make Standardized Failures". I recommend using alliteration to make a good title. Also, for us, a thesis is usually 1 sentence long.

Yes, I agree.

If you scroll half-way down this link, you will find more reasons to back up your thesis.

 

Hope it helps!
