Ridiculous thought. I'm no standardized test supporter, but these tests are far from challenging. If you've legitimately gained the knowledge necessary to pass four years of math, science, social studies and english classes, then there should be no problem. It's that simple.
If the state is really worried about those who 'stress out' over standardized tests or those who have other issues, then offer some assistance in preparing for or taking the exams. Students with disabilities routinely get more time when necessary. No reason to give a free pass to every stressed out 10th grader, though.
