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.
The standardized tests should not be eradicated from the school system, it should be a requirement in all schools, especially elementary schools. The younger they start the better they will do in the future. According to the article, titled “Testing…Testing…One, Two, Three”, it tells that “better performance-based tests will put a stop to the “dumbing-down” phenomenon” (Gluckman). This reference means that standardized testing benefits student learning by being able to identify their strengths and weaknesses; and focus on working on those weaknesses. Not only are these standardized tests unbiased, but they are also a way to monitor and promote both student and teacher achievement.
Research suggests that standardized tests can have positive effects on student achievement. 93% of studies on student testing found a positive outcome on student achievement, according to an analysis completed in 2011 by Richard P. Phelps. Therefore, standardized tests can have an advantage to students as well as teachers. Standardized tests do make students work harder, because they know that if they don’t pass the exam, they won’t pass the class. Also, the better you do on your tests the better your grades will be and the easier it will be to get accepted into the college of your choice.
In 2001, Congress passed the No Child Left Behind Act. This law was created to see all students in America improve in their academics. Standardized testing is an issue that keeps getting worse because, No Child Left Behind , requires an evaluation of schools and teachers by the student's test scores. Congress believed this would encourage the schools to ensure their teachers were preparing the students
This measure of intelligence is defective and is short-circuiting the innovative part of the mind. An ad by Mike Keefe at The Denver Post effectively exposes how students are becoming accustomed to these standardized ways of testing; therefor making students unable to answer to the real-life questions that people ask them. Mike Keefe, artistic author at The Denver Post since 1975, has enjoyed creating ads that tell an important, influential story; thus making it possible for him to connect to the ads because of his career and belief system. One of his coworkers stated that “Keefe’s ability to distill some of the most complex issues of our times to one panel and a few words” (Simpson 2016). This anecdote towards Keefe shows his true ability as an artist.
For those who enroll in college the message is “Work Hard and Party Hard” which may be their academic undoing as they fail to attend class or turn in assignments. Expectations for good grades may create stress on the student as they (or their parents) can no longer bully the professor into assigning a higher grade.” This opposing thesis is not valid because these kids which “struggle” with academic success, which is a struggle with some of heir lives, focus on the fact that they are so pressured to do well in school without their parents and have to be a exceeding well off person based off their success.. in which they should be grateful on of their greater problems. This opposing argument is flawed because it shows how rich kids (in The Outsiders, Socs) struggle with not being the best they can be academically, when Greasers do not even the the chance to stress over this topic but instead have to work to support themselves. Greasers struggle more than the Socs because they have to give up so many
Additionally, the lack of seriousness transitions into students being uninterested in school because they have to take unnecessarily long tests. Not only do standardized tests cause lack of school interest but they increase students stress. Having to sit through a test that impacts your grade, represents your intelligence, and future adds a lot of pressure to oneself. Overall, when standardized tests aren 't taken seriously the data collected makes it hard for educators to improve education, students lack motivation, and adds a lot of pressure to people 's everyday lives.
After I have read the story The Crucible I still chose the agree on opinion because I know that we have to do the right thing no matter what. Equally important, some students are trying to cheat in the test to get the high score or getting the “A+” in their grade. They think to cheat other people word instead of their word to get the high grade is the right thing to do. Since they do not want them, parents, to know that their get the low grade in the class. Again, they are knowingly this the wrong thing to do.
But his math skills are far above those in his class this shows that the child already knows the information and the parents are just holding their child back for the purpose of high test scores and their kids to be considered the brightest of the class too low and it becomes boring well too high and it becomes on the morning if you put a person who is supposed to be an algebra and he and you put them in regular algebra they will surely get an A+ on every test an assignment but what if he 's truly learning and getting from this class eventually they will get bored and lose motive to excel as a student reading is a waste of Education time and bored the child
