The "End of Instruction" tests seem to have done just what they were created for, which was to prevent students from graduating who did not learn enough in school. Yet there have been many complaints that those who failed were unfairly treated, and that they should be allowed to graduate anyway.
The purpose of the tests was to make a high school diploma more valuable than it has been in the past, and indicate that the person possessing a diploma has knowledge and ability of value to an employer.
So, those who failed the test have not learned what they should have, and should not be awarded a diploma.
