Summary/Abstract: Many researchers into Polish education put forward the thesis that it has a bureaucratic orientation and yields to the pressure of technological-economic rationality. Yielding to outer pressure and influence, many teachers apply the administrative direction in their work, which consists in paying a lot of attention to absolute fulfilling what is imposed and subjected to unceasing control. One of meticulously fulfilled requirements is the care for learners’ high scores in external tests. This proves how important for teachers’ professional practice becomes standardization in the measurement of teaching and learning achievements (with simultaneous marginalization of such significant and undoubtedly demanded educational components as individualization, subjectivization, etc.). A small section of the author’s extended analyses is presented in this study in the form of free interviews with teachers who describe what they experience in their daily professional routine.
