These tests are a very poor measurement of educational quality.Standardized tests are very biased against people with a low socioeconomic status and students of color. They also discriminate against students with learning disabilities which causes them to receive lower scores than people who do not have these issues. Standardized tests are one of the ways a school districts is scored which makes the school district puts an abundance of stress and emphasis on achieving an exceptional score. This causes several of students and teachers to cheat on the tests so as to not get in trouble for doing poorly. Another issue with these tests is they do not measure knowledge or skills needed out in the real world which causes some teachers to not teach them.
Sean Budomo Mrs. Shippen Language Arts The current education system in the United States has many problems and is extremely flawed. The education system 's faults include the lack of quality teachers in many schools that do not care and do not get paid back the amount of effort they put in, government support in the wrong areas, uses of standardized testing, and the lack of parent involvement which creates negative student behaviors and attitudes in a child 's school life are some problems of US education. Common core is a problem, it has created a national defective standard curriculum and only slightly raised the rank of the United States in education compared to other countries, but still could not fix other problems from the
Students should not be paid for good grades because it leads to classroom problems, loss of enthusiasm for learning, and it teaches students that money is the only reward. To begin with, students should not be paid for good grades because it can lead to problems in class. The National Education Association states that "Several teachers also say paying students for good grades leads to practical problems in class, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents." This means that not only is the students' education affected, however, their personal life is affected too. If they don't get the money they would feel depressed
The key to supporting children’s and young people’s learning is motivation, even if this is one to one with a pupil, in a small group or as a whole class, whether you are supporting the teacher or taking the class. Approaches to motivation include behavioural, cognitive, physiological and social. Therefore, when setting goals for pupils to achieve it is a crucial element. A pupil’s behaviour and the persistence and strength of their behaviour is all affected by motivation. Lesson plans often incorporate activities which are fun and interesting but linked to the learning objective, therefore hooking the children’s imagination so they become motivated to take part.
In conclusion, social promotion ultimately hurts students far more than it helps. Social promotion creates perpetual cycles of unpreparedness for students as they continue to fall behind in classes. The better solution for struggling students is extra help and counseling. If a student struggles in a particular subject to the point of failure, they should be given extra help and more broken down explanations of the concepts. Students should not be passed into harder classes when they couldn’t manage the previous
Depending on how desperate a teacher is for good test scores, inappropriate preparations can be made before testing, sometimes even to the point of cheating. While having standards and a uniform teaching model, high -stakes testing is generally detrimental to the education of America. The importance of these tests has become the be-all and end-all of high school. The accountability of the testing will follow the student throughout his or her educational life. Despite being held in such high regard, the high-stakes testing effects are far from the desired and predicted
This is why this topic is always so debated because of the mixed opinions and evidence backing up both sides of the argument which always leaves it to a mutual pause of discussion. The first reason that students getting paid for doing well in school is not the best idea, because of the fact that it will bring cheating to arise and students will take advantage of the system trying to get the most out of it unfairly. There are some goods in this and one of the good reasons that this may be beneficial is because it would allow for students to have something to work towards leading them
That causes a student a lot of stress with all the hard work they do during the years it seems like a waste when it comes down to a test to graduate it can be very discouraging. So in conclusion i feel Standardized tests can hinder more than help our students by limiting teaching, creating stress when it comes to graduating, putting a limit on learning for the student and teaching for the teachers. We need to have a second look at the real benefit of Standardized tests and if it is worth our students self
“Students who receive money for good grades will in long run have lower academic performances.” and also “ Students who are motivated by their own desire to learn.” This means that kids would not want to learn because it’s fun and they want to learn because they are getting paid.” The effect on this is that kids no longer have the desire to learn and that will affect them to do work on the long run. what this is all saying is that kids will no longer be motivated to learn and it will not help them in the
As discussed previously, effective lesson planning can have a positive effect on the motivation on a teacher. This is certainly the case for effective planning in the workplace. It also aids in satisfaction. Although the lesson plan’s primary objective is to improve the overall quality of teaching to benefit students, this also improves teacher motivation and development. This is achieved through using the lesson plan as a permanent record of lessons taught.
