Using PoWs and improving standardized testing! Any possible connection?

My name is Roya Salehi and I work at the Math Forum, which as you know
hosts Problems of the Week(PoW). From time to time, we hear from
teachers who say, "We are preparing for the standardized tests,
particularly the newer open-ended questions, and the PoW should help
with that."

I am curious to learn about why teachers see such a connection between
using PoWs and improving standardized testing. If there is a possible
connection, it would be useful to first form a proper hypothesis and
then conduct some research based on that.

Do you notice any connection, similarity or correlation? If so, how?

To help me form the initial hypothesis, I would be interested in
hearing your thoughts on this issue either on pow-teach or through
email <>.

Thank you in advance for your help with this endeavor.
