This is leading people to question whether or not the ACT and SATs are accomplishing what they were created to do. Standardized tests do not work because of inaccuracy, bias, and student misunderstanding. The ACT and SAT tests are used as college entrance exams all over the US. Most schools require you to take one or both of these tests and get a minimum score in order to be accepted to that school. The SAT and ACT have been proven to be fairly accurate at predicting a student’s average performance for their freshman year in college.
Cheating on tests occurs in the exam time but we need to set up methods before, both outside and inside the exam room. With outside the exam room, I mean designing ethical lessons during the learning process. We can begin each semester by soft skill and life skill trainings which educate students to be honest, self-esteem, ways to manage time. The purpose of these lessons is to help students understand the importance of studying hard, and high grade is not everything they want from school. We also explain serious consequences of cheating in the future as well as benefits of honesty.
This summer, I hope to gain mathematical knowledge and meet like-minded peers. Mathematically, I look forward to learning more about chaos theory. About 6 months ago, I attended a lecture on chaos theory. The talk kept concepts somewhat simple, but I was intrigued. Since then, I have explored various writings discussing chaos theory and its applications, ranging from web articles to simple physics problems (the double rod pendulum was a particularly intriguing study for me).
2003). AP Program aims to help students to proceed in their secondary and college education more likely at their proper pace with the idea of wasting their time for them to assists to organize and conduct course for them in college-freshmen level. The said examination was first given in 1955. In 1990’s many students, parents, high school teachers, and college faculty were concerned that the student were not adequately prepared for college-level-mathematics course (Beninati, 1963). It is a problem that starts in 1990 but up until now, we still are dealing with this problem.
A skool resolution is kind of difficult for me because well, it’s school and what else is school to a teenager. On the serious thought, i really want this year to be different than last, last year i tried in the beginning but as school went on i began procrastinating a lot on school work like I am right now and not changing “skool” to “school”, yes that was on purpose Mrss. Enns so dont mark points off I was trying to prove a point. To try harder than I’ve been is my school resolution. I played around my freshman and sophomore years, now i have to start giving it all i have my junior year to keep my high school resolution.
The self-regulation I have contain seems to disappears little by little in my body, all I wanted was to leave the class and never come back again. This experience happens with My Foolishness, My Feeling, My Failure, My Friends, My Family, in F5 class. It is the den, where I leant where to cultivate what it mean to be accept what you do, how you think and how the beauty of your thinking can affect you writing. This has been the experience that hurt me the most academically and still, it made me realize that we are never good enough, but we still need to excel in what we are doing. Since this realization, I was always looking ahead to have this class.
In addition, cheating also can occur before the examination where some of the teachers give spot question to their student. This is because, normally the test, quiz and examination question are drafted by the teacher. So to ensure their student get higher score, they will give the spot question to their
They concentrate so much on mastering any subjects that it nearly wears them out. It has been shown that heavy pressure when studying has resulted in a number of suicide cases and mental illnesses such as autism. There are certain some disadvantages of university entrance exams. First, the exams have a poor predictive quality because they judge a student`s ability under a set of predetermined conditions and during a limited time. Many times students who are otherwise good students may get very anxious or confused with the subjects under the strict exam conditions, making them to fail.
I also went through this trial to start my journey to the path of wisdom. Recently I changed my school and joined the new school in middle of the school year where I had already missed a quarter. I felt bad about the fact that a political conflict between two countries affected my schooling. However, I stayed strong and even tried to catch up with what I missed. It wasn’t easy for me to study what I missed because the British and the American curriculum are like the two poles of the magnet: they are different and the way of teaching are also different.
My performance on the listening test is very unstable, and similar things happened in previous EAP classes as well. I performed well in our first listening practice taken at the beginning of this semester. However, my performance of our midterm listening exam was unsatisfactory. Once I was under pressure, I felt distracted when I was listening. In the past midterm, I believed that I missed some important points at the beginning of the talk, which added me great difficulties to recognize the structure of the talk.
