Seeing student progress is moreso a way to assess teachers and see if they are truly helping the students and it’s more of a reflection on the teacher rather than the student. Therefore, having the ability to see student progress and weak areas doesn’t help the students and if it does, it’s in a very minor way. In conclusion, the “pros” of standardized testing aren’t really pro’s and help students very little to not at
A Critical Review of Hall, 2011, “Affective Assessment: The Missing Piece of the Educational Reform Puzzle”, The Delta Kappa Gamma Bulletin International Journal for Professional Educators, vol. 77, no 2, pp. 7-10. In her article “Affective Assessment: The Missing Piece of the Educational Reform Puzzle” Hall claims, that nowadays despite being aware of threedomains of learner behavior such as cognitive, affective and psychomotor, teachers still tend to focus mainly on cognitive domain, leaving the other two behind. She says, that teachers not only fail to assess students’ affective domain, but sometimes are unable to identify it, since very little attention is being paid to it.
When it comes to the academic and work environments intrinsic motivation might be weakened by factors like competition or lack of choice because the attentional focus is on external reasons therefore, blocking the internal drive. Further in the article, the author explains a study that was done on how procrastination differentiates between men and women. The results indicated that women seek perfectionism in their work and fear failing. But, women did not change in their intrinsic motivation towards their school work. In addition, the data explained that men who procrastinate with school usually had low intrinsic motivation toward assignments and found little to no satisfaction in their work making it hard for them to stay motivated.
A School is a place where children are sent by their parents to get an education not to be hit by strangers. In fact, 64% of the people disagree with corporal punishment due to many reasons. There are short term effects on corporal punishment and long term effects. Debating and taking a side in corporal punishment may be very effective toward the child in a negative or positive way. Opinions vary from person to person, a small group of people is supporting corporal punishment due to several reasons.
(Gandy). Although she makes the point that standardized testing does show results for areas of improvement, she does not acknowledge why these tests are controversial, and why some students already start at a disadvantage. People forget that teachers and administrators work for students; this means young children. Students, especially young children, must aim to be strong readers in order to survive in society. Everyday people are mislead and taken advantage of because of poor literacy skills.
Betty’s remarks reveal that the teacher did not have a set of explicit rules for conducting the activities in the class, which resulted in confusion and a decrease in students’ motivation. Negative Feedback Teacher’s negative comments contributed significantly to a decrease in his motivation. Surya observed that his teacher seemed not to be aware that comments and negative feedback when correcting errors hurt the students and made them feel humiliated. Some students refrained from volunteering to answer questions or even chose to remain silent even though the teacher pointed at them to answer. This was illustrated by Surya as follows: I am not very interested and motivated to study English lately.
In the context of schools, people in “positions of higher authority” include teachers, administrators, counselors etc. Fern (2004) has shown that students are not as likely to disclose information regarding school conflicts as they are to their friends. To understand why, one must look into Organizational Behavior theories. Douglass Creed, an Organizational Behavior scientist, explains in his book Trust in Organizations that “Trust in organizations is based on similarity of experiences and characteristics.” In schools, it is a student’s peers, not his or her teachers or counselors who share similar experiences and characteristics with the student. Thus, we can infer as Fern(2004) has empirically proven that students are more likely to trust their peers than they are to trust adults.
For one, poor quality teacher evaluation instruments can lessen the ability to evaluate a teacher’s skills. Often times, these instruments are “cookie-cutter” forms and are not modified or changed to reflect current trends in teaching or subject matter. They sometimes just have lists of desirable traits that someone identified as being important. I’m not sure it is beneficial to have one standardized form to use for all of the teachers located at the same school. Different subjects, students, and classrooms all have varying objectives and therefore, teacher evaluations should reflect these variables.
Since this was the case, it was common that the non-native people, along with myself, would score the lowest on tests. Yet, some may argue that this is not due to the differences in culture and background, but rather due to the student having a bad teacher. Although it may be true that good teachers would not allow a student’s identity affect how they reach the specific student, it must be noted that teachers of students that have poor scores are “of about the same quality” (Strauss) as those students who score very well. Therefore teachers cannot be a deciding factor in child success or otherwise there would be a discrepancy in the ability of teachers where there is not. Plus, it must be pointed out “how well some of [the] students are doing,” (Strauss) if poor teachers were really the cause of the bad test scores of some students then all the students in that class should be scoring equally bad, but this is not the
In the end they can’t get their project done, gets a bad grade, gets a referral and the good kids made bad image in their teachers eyes. As I said, a lack of concentration, witness and bad role models in group, loafing around, and in end project is not completed these are all the main reasons that a group project should not be have. And for me this is the bad project that anyone can have. Instead of a group project, we should have a project that we can to by our self, so we can’t get in troubled and also we can get extra time to think how I can make the best project, instead of thinking about how can I get involved in grouping and how can I get popular in
