(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.
Are standardized test truly a fair assessment of student’s abilities or not? What are standardized tests? Standardized tests are a test given to assess a student or a group of students using a test with the same questions and answers to determine students educational stand points. Standardized test are not a fair assessment for measuring student ability because they will not help students in the future, they can cause students to lose opportunities, and studies say standardized tests do not show true improvement. First of all Standardized test will not help students in the future.
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
Good Grades Argumentative Essay “Why do I have to try in school and do homework?” This is something you might hear from a student. Most adults would reply, “Because it is your job and responsibility.” If it is a student’s job to go to school, shouldn’t schools pay students for doing their job correctly? If schools really want to motivate students to do better, they should pay their students. If schools pay students, there will be many positive effects. Schools need to pay students for a reduction of gangs, improved attendance, and to teach students about budgeting and saving.
How many times do you tell yourself that low grades couldn’t stop me of trying? How many times do you think about the success road of failing persons like Gates, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, and Darwin? Does work success come from exams failure? Although some believe that university and exams test are the one method of evaluating the student’s performance since grades has reflected how a student doing in the course, others consider that grades should not tell much about the student’s work because of the poor predictive quality and subjectivity of some teachers in putting grades. First, the exams and tests should not be the only way to
“Some people, including some parenting experts, argue that kids should be satisfied with the warm fuzzy feelings of accomplishment. Success is its own reward, they say, deciding that a child’s internal drive to succeed is far more important in the long run than money.” This quote comes from an argumentative article from Ginger Ninja over whether or not it is okay to reward student with cash for achieving good grades. The debate is important because doing so has many effects on students’ academic progress. AFter assessing multiple articles on the matter, three main effects of this new program grabbed my attention. One effect this has on students is that over time, they will develop bad study habits.
In the question, “Does your personality affects your grades?” 64% of students answered yes and 36% of students answered no. Personality is a unique and relatively stable ways in which a person thinks, feels and behaves thus, it can affect one’s grade. Students must possessed a passionate act, way, or thinking for school and learning. Therefore, these 64% of the 50 first year students are into studies that even their personality affects their grades. In the personality attitude is a branch of it therefore, if you have an attitude of being passionate in your studies thus, your personality can affect your grades.
Kids are lacking the drive to do well in school and get good grades in their classes. A recent experiment in Washington D.C showed that kids with serious behavioral problems made significant improvements when offered money for good grades and performance (Turque 1). A kid won’t change his or her entire attitude on school just because his parents gave him a lecture on how important school and good grades are. Money may be a tool parents and educators should consider to motivate students with behavioral
However I strongly believe that in order to accomplish success in studies, relationships, and career it is crucial to do things one does not enjoy doing. The first argument in favor of doing something that is not enjoyable to do is that it is necessary to succeed at school. Most of the students would agree that there are tasks at school that are not fun but are certainly essential to succeed. Ph.D. Lawrence Turner, professor of the mathematics department and blogger writes that a student who does more than 90% of homework is most likely to finish the course with a grade “A”, but a student who does less that 50% of the assigned homework is most likely to fail the course. Moreover,
1.0 Introduction What is ‘High Scope’? It refers to the high determinations and far-reaching mission of a model of education originating in the USA.
