3. SOCIAL EFFECTS/INFLUENCES -Creates division between the children and families of those who perfom well VS those who don't -Influences society from a young age to value book smarts, therefore the belief in valuing those who perform well at a higher level -not all students have supportive home lives therefore they are not necessarily learning to their full potential until they have the cognitive ability to separate adversity from eduction

4. PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS -shows kids of an elitist mentality -puts unnecessary anxiety on developing psyches -only shows one days performance (under pressure) -can boost the moral of kids who perform well -Prepares kids for test conditions going forward -Could develop a fear of failure

5. POLITICAL EFFECTS - Government knows where to distribute their resources based on performance -shows the different values in education based on the cultural questions - shows differences and similarities between states as well as rural and urban education -allows government to recognise where additional support is required
