Hey, I feel you on this.  While state tests should measure academic success, there are good tests and bad tests.  And from all the sample English tests I've seen since arriving in this state, holy shnikes those are bad tests.  Holding all students up to certain standards is a great idea, but those standards need to be evaluated for their quality, not just their ability to make a certain percentage of kids fail.  While the English II benchmark of having kids be able to "infer" something from a fictional passage makes sense, having questions that literally demand that a kid "infer" something may not be the best way to measure their ability to meet that benchmark.
