High school seniors can go though many things within the duration of a year that will eventually cause them stress. One of the reasons most high school seniors get stressed is because of the requirement to maintain a passing grade in all courses needed in order to graduate. Some seniors take college courses. In this scenario it becomes more stressful because the student now has to maintain both the high school and college GPA. Another reason teenagers might get stressed is because
Academic Stress: Academic stress among students have long been researched on, and researchers have identified stressors as too many assignments, competitions with other students, failures and poor relationships with other students or lecturers (Fairbrother & Warn, 2003). Academic stressors include the student 's perception of the extensive knowledge base required and the perception of an inadequate time to develop it (Carveth et al, 1996). Students report experiencing academic stress at predictable times each semester with the greatest sources of academic stress resulting from taking and studying for exams, grade competition, and the large amount of content to master in a small amount of time (Abouserie, 1994). When stress is perceived negatively
They often feel rushed in teaching all the required information in one school year because of the time spent reviewing forgotten information (Priddy). Teachers are also pressured to cover certain lessons and topic for each grade. With time spent reviewing lost information they feel rushed to catch up and meet the requirements. Students are stressed during the school year because they have too few breaks. Stress from school can lead students to a lack of motivation.
There are multiple things that could keep students from excelling in school. According to ‘Pros vs. Cons of Extended School Days’, “Before deciding to extend the school day, consider changes that can be incorporated to solve the specific issues the school is facing.” Extending school hours is the easy way to approach the issue, but it isn’t that simple. One cause of low test scores is the misuse of time in class. There are many students who have trouble with time management. They often struggle to finish their work on time because they’re engaged in conversations or things other than their assignment.
There are some students who either are incoming high school students or are returning which can be a big fear for them the most because they don’t know what to expect from the campus vibe or even what their teacher can be like. Cox explains on how some students even have a fear of applying for college because of the paperwork they have to fill out and how much requirements they ask for. Also they
However, late start can still be dreadful by causing heaps of negative stress in the family. Due to financial problems in some families, some students could be providing income in order to support their families. Accepting late start could mean that these students could need to quit their jobs or work night shifts. Working night shifts could mean sleep deprivation which can cause negative stress. In other words, possibly more health issues than what we started with.
Suggestions for how to maintain the workforce range from better training on how to understand the certification process having mentors who could help keep them on track at least until they receive tenure, and more training at the college level on the curriculum. Waiting until the Internship is too late to provide on the job training. By then you’ve spent 3 years in theory and non on the reality. The reality of the job means bad-tempered students with no accountability, little or no parental involvement , lack of leadership, inconsistently enforced administrative procedures and miserably low paychecks. Some students lack the financial resources and support to make it through college and the large differences in the teacher training process in colleges and universities cause another disparity.
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
Some students can't take all the work that the professors give out, and they either drop that class or drop out the whole semester. Student’s faces a lot of things in college that will make them drop out of southwest. Sometimes when the classes begin, and they get their first assignment it be too hard on them. I’ve learned, and talked to some people why they dropped out of southwest, some of they said the work was too hard. Others told me that they stopped playing for their education.
While this helps students become organized and more responsible it can cause many students to be stressed out. Families have to spend money on classes and materials used to prepare for these tests. Students have to balance school work and test prep which from personal experience is very stressful. It is true that these test challenge students to retain information which is a good skill to have but, there are other options besides
Long-term effects of chronic absenteeism include low socioeconomic status in adulthood, social and emotional difficulties, and psychiatric disorders (Kearney & Graczyk, 2013). This research seeks to improve attendance among students at Second Start Alternative High School. Many students are not receiving academic credit due to their lack of attendance. The target problem is defined as frequent absenteeism. Students who are not accomplishing an attendance rate of eighty-five percent can be determined as frequently absent.
Sometimes it is harder for some than others. Not only does a recession bring numerous problems for their current students but also the incoming freshman faculty and staff each year. For example, Tennessee State University has had to cut their enrollment down by 10 percent and has eliminated more than 52 positions. Lose in school finds can cause a reduction in lists of courses as well as reduce freshmen scholarships. With these type of cuts, different programs in which students are pursuing their bachelor or graduate degree in will also have to be cut because the necessary classes are no longer giving.
Many students have been found to become highly nervous and anxious taking these tests. As Ravitch (2013), “the exams looked like AP exams and were beyond the reach of many students”. These tests must be revised so that the majority of students can actually understand them. While some may be able to perform at this level not all will and believing that making something harder will improve ability is insane. Students must not be expected to do well on tests they don’t even understand.
At times is stressful because I think of scenarios of what will happen if I don’t graduate. It’s also stressful because I’m here on a scholarship. That scholarship requires me to pass all my classes with a c- or better. That might not seem like a harsh thing, but combining all the class together leads to a world of stress. I’m not going to lie I sometimes must neglect a class to focus on another classes work.
These tests are putting too much pressure on a student, which can lead to anxiety causing them to mess up and fail or even drop out before they are given the test because they’re not good at tests and don’t want to try to get told they failed after 4years. Standardized tests are an unreliable measure of a student’s performance. Performance simply means an action or process of carrying out or accomplishing an action, task, or function. Why should I let a test tell me what I know? I feel like standardized test are more for the school then for us.
