It gives students a feeling that they are trusted and cant let their professor down. The students as well have the peer pressure of their fellow students into doing the right thing. So if the majority of students respect the honor code, the rest will follow. In Source F it backs up my view with this statement “Unlike the majority of colleges where proctoring of tests and exams is the responsibility of the faculty and/or administration, many schools with academic honor codes allow students to take their exams without proctors present, relying on peer monitoring to control cheating.
Here Primack is saying that teachers don 't challenge students because they are afraid of lower marks on evaluations and complaints and risking their careers, so they give in and assign students grades they want but
Farber believes that the grades create phony motivation and students only want to please the teachers. According to Farber, students only retain the material until they are graded on it. No longer having a grading system would leave students having no drive in school. Schools would no longer have a basic form of ranking the students and see how well they are doing. Students would no longer want to see the point in striving to be the best when everyone is ranked the same.
While remedial classes are good in theory, in many cases, they are unnecessary for students if the standard class does not help the student achieve his or her degree. Remedial classes often push students further away from their degrees, and community colleges would benefit from only making students take remedial classes that are required for their degree. Along with being too expensive and having required remedial classes, many students
Did you know that Forty-one percent of four-year college students did not graduate within six years? College students around the country are in insane amount of debts and have no way to get rid of it and that’s a reason many do not graduate. Due to the rise in costs to attend college there has been discussions about free education, but how the debt could have been minimized and the effects on the economy have not been brought up. College education should not be offered for free to all students because of the missed opportunities and unintended costs of free education are very expensive. Students don’t take advantage of the opportunities they are provided in high school, like dual-enrollment, that could save them time and money in college.
The system ignores the significant issues of inner-city schools and students are not motivated to succeed because they feel like they are not good enough or smart enough. The students that don 't end up dropping out of school usually end up graduating only knowing if they’re good at school or not. As the transcendentalists believed, schools should teach and embrace individuality among students. This would help students to find their niche and be happy with their jobs and their lives in the future. The American Educational system does not help prepare students to become successful
Should teachers be quitting due to the stress of testing? No, because they don't really go through as much stress as the students do when they are testing and the teachers should also be able to handle these things and not just quit because they think it is too complicated(Occupytheory). Does it affect the way teachers teach their classes? Standardized tests do affect the way teachers teach because they can only teach certain things and not what they think that the students might need. Do to standardized testing the teachers have to teach what is on their guide to teach the students.
Students all over the country would love to get paid, but some studies have shown that students will do better at school if they get paid for getting good grades. Bad effects is that one year the school pays you for good grades, then the next year you don't get paid. Reasons kids (students) don’t get paid is because kids might cheat on test or commit crimes to get good grades. The students would not learn for fun because there desire to learn is gone because they only want to learn is for the money. One other thing is that students should be satisfied with their good grades but now all the students care about is the money.
First of all, students should not be paid for good grades due to not needed pressure. The NEA claims : many teachers say, “Paying students for good grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents.” This means students are more likely to be in bad moods and have bad relationships with parents and classmates. If some kids get money and the rest don’t, arguments will break out. In a classroom, students are supposed to be respectful to each other in order to have and efficient working environment.
Being the youngest of four children it has been interesting to see the outcome of what college and the debt that build up tend to do to people. Students are creating huge amount of debt trying to get a degree so that they can have a job and life after college. But the real question people have to ask themselves is that is college worth it? To build up an amount of debt that has you working in your late fifties just to pay off the debt from college to get “started on your” life? College is not worth the cost due to a much raised price teachers and education, as well as uninsured job security.
In Keith M. Parsons’, “Message to My Freshman Students.” , He shows that he is very biased. To me the points he tells don’t prove anything, as they’re invalid. He tells how students need to adapt to how professors teach, when coming into college. He also tells that the teachers are the ones to blame for freshman students being, “apathetic, incurious, inattentive, unresponsive and frequently absent” (Keith M. Parsons’,” Message to My Freshman Students”).
The Lives of Migrant Farmworkers is article where Dirk Frewing recalls he lives as he grew up. He begins his article painting a picture of nurturing parents that would take him and his sister on driving excursions through farmland. Seizing an educational opportunity, he parents informed him how hard the farm hands work. The official introduction to the life of a farmworker came when Frewing was in college literature through the book Plum Plum Pickers. Frewing then went on to frequent work camps/fields with a friend.
In the last half century, looking back what human being have created and achieved in science, technology, economy, society and art ect, is the tremendous accomplishments. This has being created by the nation all over the world not just a particular developed country. Now we are living in extensive, increasingly complex society. But how come we could rapidly grow up? There were tons of people who were contributed to make this world great with their effort but there are the guides that educational institutions plays a important role in leading them to the real-world.
The honor code is thought to be effective, when taking tests, but is it making students even more nervous, than they already are. The honor code is mostly used by universities because of the size of some of the classes, which doesn’t allow the professor to keep their eyes on all their students. The honor code can be used against those who cheat those who witness the cheating and fail to report it. The honor system enforces students to not cheat and to keep an eye on their peers, so that it’s no unfair.
The Benefits of Optional Standardized Testing According to the data of William Hiss, a previous dean of admissions for Bates College, “students with higher grades and modest test scores did better in college than students with lower grades and higher test scores” (Sheffer). This proves that grades are more accurate predictors of a student's academic success. There are many benefits of making standardized tests optional or not requiring them at all. Standardized tests are a biased way of measuring academic talent.
