‘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.

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...

Why cannot it be B. Isn't what is made parallel with score.

Hi,

Need expert opinion on this. I think E is the correct answer here because it clearly conveys the idea. But E is still changing the meaning of the original sentence. Should we accept this as the answer despite the meaning is changed?

To answer your Question, B is incorrect because it tries to convey the meaning that test scores are called objective while as per the meaning of the sentence, it should be the index which is called an objective.

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

Thanks

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


KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



E

The beginning of the underlined part should be "an index ... that is called objective," not "an index ... that are called objective." If you catch an obvious error like this, quickly scan the other choices for versions that repeat it. That knocks out (B). (Remember you don't need to reread (A); it's the same as the original, and we already know that's wrong.) Now, we are left with (C), (D), and (E). The crucial difference here is between the wordy phrase progress, such as what is made-in (C) and (D)-an d (E)'s progress such as that. (E)'s wording is preferable.
