This is the situation now in Italy with the INVALSI tests. When I went to school the system was different, there is and always has been a ministerial teaching program with mandatory and optional topics year per year.

The tests were ministerial but tailored to each class, so that if for reasons some part of the program were not touched they were not asked in the exam. There was no graduatory, only a grade (the grade system changed too many times to be worthy of mention, usually 5 votes with 1 not-pass and 4 passes).

In my opinion they were great experiences: subject kids to stress, have them work hard for something and then they pass. It teaches stress and time management from an early age.
