Uninformed about students’ experience in urban classrooms, critics often condemn schools’ performance as gauged by an index, such as standardized test scores, that are called objective and can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as that in higher-level reasoning.

‘Such as standardized test scores’ is only an example and hence can not decide the verb. It is the singular ‘index’ that is related by the pronoun ‘that’ and hence, the verb has to be the singular ‘is’ – Drop A and B

In C, ‘an index, such as standardized test scores, that is called objective and can be quantified’ is too verbose at least by a couple of words in comparison to ‘a so-called objective index, such as standardized test scores, that can be quantified” in D and E

In E, the expression ‘that is quantified’ alters the intent of the text which means ‘that can be quantified’

D glides past these pitfalls smoothly and survives. However, the phrase ‘such as what is made’ is indeed unnecessary and one can always prefer ‘such as that” as in E. However, E has the fatal flaw of using the unacceptable ‘that is quantified’

However,Do you know something, the original post from Kaplan, as given below is different from this simulated one here . The Kaplan example has “ can be quantified” for all the choices, unlike in this text, which alters Choice E with ‘that is quantified’ which is materially wrong.

Look at this

A. an index, such as standardized test scores, that are called objective and can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as that
B. an index, such as standardized test scores, that are called objective and can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as what is made
C. an index, such as standardized test scores, that is called objective and can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as what is made
D. a so-called objective index, such as standardized test scores, that can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as what is made
E. a so-called objective index, such as standardized test scores, that can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as that

In the Kaplan's case E is the OA and rightly so. But in the given one here, D IMO.

I think the answer should be D or E.

I will go with D as E alters the meaning of the sentence

+1 D

I think that "that is called objective" is not the intended meaning.

E I think
that - in high level reasoning is better than made in high level reasoning.

I am confused. I think it is E but since the subject is singular should overlook not be overlooks

I think between D and E. I would have to choose D for the last part

D. a so-called objective index, such as standardized test scores, that can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as what is made
E. a so-called objective index, such as standardized test scores, that can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as that

progress made in higher reasoning is being compared here, so D

Between D and E, D sounds correct using 'that can be quantified'. E uses 'that is quantified', this changes the meaning of the sentence.

+1 for D.

In addition to the reasons specified above, i do not like E because it omits "made" (such as that made in sounds more correct - that refers to progress and progress is made).

E sounds better than other choices-

e. Uninformed about students’ experience in urban classrooms, critics often condemn schools’ performance as gauged by a so-called objective index, such as standardized test scores, that is quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as that in higher-level reasoning.

E means that critics condemn performance as gauged by the index such as X .also critics overlook progress such as Y...

Going with D. It maintains parallelism.

Looks like the clear winner is not yet decided.
In D 'such as what is made' - refers to measurable progress. This way of referring looks better to me.
I am also going with D.
Still waiting for the final answer.

I was leaning towards E at first... but now I would say that D sounds best. "what is made" threw me off.... but it does refer to progress in a better fashion that E does.

out of D and E, IMO D...
in E that is quantified is causing shift in meaning.
