test or examination (informally, exam or evaluation) is an assessment intended to measure a test-taker's knowledgeskillaptitudephysical fitness, or classification in many other topics (e.g., beliefs).[1] A test may be administered verbally, on paper, on a computer, or in a predetermined area that requires a test taker to demonstrate or perform a set of skills. Tests vary in style, rigor and requirements. For example, in a closed book test, a test taker is usually required to rely upon memory to respond to specific items whereas in an open book test, a test taker may use one or more supplementary tools such as a reference book or calculator when responding. A test may be administered formally or informally. An example of an informal test would be a reading test administered by a parent to a child. A formal test might be a final examination administered by a teacher in a classroom or an I.Q. test administered by a psychologist in a clinic. Formal testing often results in a grade or a test score.[2] A test score may be interpreted with regards to a norm or criterion, or occasionally both. The norm may be established independently, or by statistical analysis of a large number of participants. An exam is meant to test a persons knowledge or willingness to give time to manipulate that subject.

standardized test is any test that is administered and scored in a consistent manner to ensure legal defensibility.[3] Standardized tests are often used in educationprofessional certificationpsychology (e.g., MMPI), the military, and many other fields.

A non-standardized test is usually flexible in scope and format, variable in difficulty and significance. Since these tests are usually developed by individual instructors, the format and difficulty of these tests may not be widely adopted or used by other instructors or institutions. A non-standardized test may be used to determine the proficiency level of students, to motivate students to study, and to provide feedback to students. In some instances, a teacher may develop non-standardized tests that resemble standardized tests in scope, format, and difficulty for the purpose of preparing their students for an upcoming standardized test.[4] Finally, the frequency and setting by which a non-standardized tests are administered are highly variable and are usually constrained by the duration of the class period. A class instructor may for example, administer a test on a weekly basis or just twice a semester. Depending on the policy of the instructor or institution, the duration of each test itself may last for only five minutes to an entire class period.

In contrasts to non-standardized tests, standardized tests are widely used, fixed in terms of scope, difficulty and format, and are usually significant in consequences. Standardized tests are usually held on fixed dates as determined by the test developer, educational institution, or governing body, which may or may not be administered by the instructor, held within the classroom, or constrained by the classroom period. Although there is little variability between different copies of the same type of standardized test (e.g., SAT or GRE), there is variability between different types of standardized tests.

Any test with important consequences for the individual test taker is referred to as a high-stakes test.

A test may be developed and administered by an instructor, a clinician, a governing body, or a test provider. In some instances, the developer of the test may not be directly responsible for its administration. For example, Educational Testing Service (ETS), a nonprofit educational testing and assessment organization, develops standardized tests such as the SAT but may not directly be involved in the administration or proctoring of these tests. As with the development and administration of educational tests, the format and level of difficulty of the tests themselves are highly variable and there is no general consensus or invariable standard for test formats and difficulty. Often, the format and difficulty of the test is dependent upon the educational philosophy of the instructor, subject matter, class size, policy of the educational institution, and requirements of accreditation or governing bodies. In general, tests developed and administered by individual instructors are non-standardized whereas tests developed by testing organizations are standardized.

    2014 was such a great year for me, I joined the Kayteam, met incredible people, traveled the world, I haven’t waited  for the 1st of January to make slight changes in my life. When I turned 20, pretty much everything evolved. I’m a lucky girl and I’m so grateful for it. Grateful for my friends and family, for my health, grateful to do what I love for a living, grateful to share some of my adventures with you all and for amazing opportunities like the one I had the chance to live in Dubaï this December.

    I was invited by the Burj Al Arab, better know as “The Most Luxurious Hotel in the World” and when I think about what I experienced, it just feels like it was a dream. Unreal.. The ones of you that follow me on Snapchat had some little hints and small glimpse of a room tour… Room, I mean, Duplex suite. So huge I haven’t been in all the rooms. The driver picked me from the airport in a Rolls Royce Phantom, I had 24/24 butler service and had the chance to attend their private anniversary party with the biggest fireworks show ever done.

    This trip allowed me to experience the best of Dubaï so here’s a new #Kaytips on the places to go, the things to do in this amazing city.

    It’s worth the ride. I mean, you’ll obviously end up with a picture of you in a bikini next to it’s incredible glass sail-shaped stature so don’t be shy and take the bridge to see what it looks like from the inside. The hotel has 202 suites, each one with a private butler and arranged over 2 floors. If you have the chance to stay there, it’s a *once in a lifetime* experience. I honestly felt like an arabian princess or something, the service is truly amazing and everyone is super kind. A must do.

  4. Rise and shine: this fall, it’s all about glitter from top to toe!

    Girls, rise and shine! Because this fall is shaping up to be quite a bright one. How come? Seems like designers all played being Peter Pan’s fairy Tinkerbell this fall season: they bandied glitter around as if they were to celebrate the last day on earth. The more, the better: they literally piledsparkling sequins up on skirts, coats and dresses, they cladded shoes, bags, and yes – even the model’s faces — with glitter and (ab)used copiously shiny, metallic fabrics.
