The teacher feels they learned, showed excellent growth and performed well-rounded work enabling them to get a B. Then they take the Keystone exam in that subject and don't score in the top two levels, for whatever reason. This means that they need to be remediated during the next school year and retake the exam. This takes time away from their other coursework/schedule and costs the districts much needed funds and teacher resources. Graduating from high school should be based on many areas of mastery. Passing a Keystone exam should not be one of them.
