The results of the researches were varied, however, as far as the effects on emotional intelligence and academic achievement is concerned. Farooq (2003) found that students with high emotional intelligence showed better academic achievement. This is because effective learning can take place when students can develop understanding, skills, confidence and ability to communicate with each other (Nasir & Masur, 2010). According to Low and Nelson (2004) emotional intelligence skills are the key factors in academic achievement of high school and college students. Besides that, a significant positive correlation between emotional intelligence and academic achievement was also found in a correlation survey research by Festus (2012).
Corporal punishment refers to physical punishment such as caning or flogging used against undesired behavior by children. It is used in an attempt to discipline a child. There have been innumererable debates on whether corporal punishment is really helpful in mending a child’s behavior. A lot of papers have also been published but people still hold a differing opinion on the topic. Keeping aside the pros and cons of corporal punishment, don’t you think that corporal punishment is a direct violation of children’s rights?
Corporal punishment is violation of children’s right. According to the Committee [on the Right of Child], corporal punishment is defined as “corporal” or “physical” punishment as any punishment in which physical force is used and intended to cause some degree of pains or discomforts, however light. It is believed that there are few ways to educate children; it depends on each families to choose the way to educate their own child. One of them is corporal punishment, which is also the most used course of action compared to the other non-physical forms of punishment. A study of 120 parents in Malaysia found that 40% had inflicted “moderate” physical punishment (hitting with an object, spanking, and etc.).
In respect of the strengths, the paper identified several advantages of the standard testing methods on students, which eventually promote the learning experience. In addition, the advantages allow teachers to evaluate the consistency and progress of students. Finally, the paper evaluated numerous weaknesses of standardized tests for both educators and learners. Among the disadvantages is their nonspecific nature, their failure to adhere to teaching provisions, their failure to provide educators with relevant learner information, the not continuous assessments, and their emphasis on
The students who were exposed to cooperative learning seemed to have higher score on the tests and have positive attitude towards mathematics. In addition, Nampha (2011) studied students’ mathematics achievement after being provided cooperative learning with a criterion. She found that students’ mathematics achievement after being provided cooperative learning was higher than the 70 percent criterion. Zakaria et al. (2010) studied the effects of cooperative learning on students’ mathematics achievement and attitude towards mathematics.
The Effects of Corporal Punishment in Children Doris A. Garcia Houston Community College Professor: Dr. Matt Webster The Effects of Corporal Punishment in Children Should physical means of punishment be an option to discipline our children when they are misbehaving? The use of corporal punishment to discipline children remains one of the last holdouts of old-fashioned childrearing in the United States (Gershoff, 2010). Corporal punishment (or also known as physical punishment) is defined as the use of physical force towards a child for the purpose of controlling the child’s behavior, and is often used as a punishment (Rimal & Pokharel, 2014). It is inflicted on the child’s body with the intention of causing some degree of pain or discomfort (Cashmore & de Haas, 1995). Over the course of the years, corporal punishment has been controversially spoken about whether if it’s an effective or barbaric method of discipline to raise a child.
Of course, it must be stated that parent involvement significantly increases student achievement. Not only do character education programs have a positive affect academically and socially, but it also affects long-term test scores positively (Brannon,
Corporal Punishment is a form of discipline incorporated with physical and psychological abuse to reduce undesired behaviors. It has been a practice all throughout ages particularly in Asia. According to Dayton (1994), in corporal punishment, the adult usually hits various parts of the child’s body with a hand or with canes, paddles, yardsticks, belts, or other objects expected to cause pain and fear. And, frequent punishment may even inhibit cognitive development (Strauss & Paschall, 1999) Under the common law, teachers and other school personnel have the right to administer reasonable corporal punishment, which is the infliction of physical pain on a student for misconduct (Andero, 2002) but House Bill 4455 or the anti-Corporal Punishment bill in the Philippines, implements substitutes for physical and psychological abuse into positive and non-violent forms of
According to Bolin (2010), Academic Dishonesty is persistent and pervasive problem. The present study is an examination of the roles of self control, attitude toward academic dishonesty and perceived opportunity in predicting dishonesty. Predictors of Cheating among Early Adolescents: Academic and Social Motivations. As Stated by Murdock, Hale, and Weber, This study examined the relations between middle school students’ self-reported cheating and several indicators of academic and social motivation. It was hyphothesized that students’ academic self-efficacy and personal and classroom goal orientations would predict cheating.
One has to add these exams and find the average to see what a student’s academic performance is. Academic performance is important because it a correlates with a person’s success. People who are more successful have higher academic performance. People who are more successful also show higher levels of wellbeing. Wellbeing is a psychological construct that correlates with general happiness that a person experiences in his or her life.
