Doesn't "standardized" simply mean that everyone is measured on the
same scale? Isn't that a good thing?

I think some people believe "standardized tests" are restricted to
norm-referenced, multiple-choice tests. This has not been true for
several years, although those continue to be the most widely-used
standardized tests.
