Other pros of the honor code is it actually works in some cases. 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.
And without institutional backing, individual faculty members simply yield to whining students." 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.
Even if a student passes the remedial class, he or she is not any closer to his or her degree than before, which often discourages many students. According to Meredith Kolodner (2015), “The model that’s used now is a set of prerequisite courses in English and math that presumably will build up the skills of a student so that they can be successful in any college-level course, but that hasn’t been effective” (para. 7). 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.
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
They try to improve their score because everybody else has a better one than them so they feel they are not good enough. 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.
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. The effect of this is, students will be stressed and annoyed or angry with them, if unable to raise test scores.
Overtime colleges have continuously gotten more and more expensive. 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?
