“Keystones don’t show my love for art.”
“Keystones don’t determine my future.”
“A test score doesn’t determine my learning journey.”

“We wanted to show the public all the ways that students’ lives, passions, and experiences cannot be evaluated by high stakes standardized testing,” Nomi Martin-Brouillette, one of the lead student developers of the website, said in a statement.
The website comes at a time when more local parents and students are choosing to opt out of standardized testing.
