Virginia rates high nationally for creating solid education monitoring standards.

That's according to a study of public school tests by the Princeton Review, a test-preparation company.

The study ranked New York as the best test-giver in the nation, followed by Massachusetts, Texas, North Carolina and Virginia.

The bottom of the list is dominated by small states that buy their tests from companies rather than create their own systems.

Standardized testing for elementary and high school students has become a major issue in Virginia and around the country. Many states are still in the early stages of creating programs designed to track school successes and failures.
