Yes, because then they somewhat know what to be expecting when the actual test comes. They can prepare for the test better and ask the teachers more questions. Do the students face pressure when they are trying to improve their score? Yes, because when they are trying to improve their score they feel anxiety. They try to improve their score because everybody else has a better one than them so they feel they are not good enough.
Benefits are 1) It causes leaders to collaborate amongst schools and districts resulting in promoting new teaching strategies and ideas to improve education for students. 2) It helps the leader gauge learning by the establishment of minimum teaching standards for all students at each grade level and 3) It gives the leader a method to identify non effective teaching practices and/or teachers. The cons on the leadership is 1) It forces the leader to condense content and teacher must cut and/or condense because of lack of classroom time, 2) It doesn 't give the leadership flexibility in consideration for learning disabled in testing scores 3) Because of the inflexibility and the condensation of the curriculum it leads to a loss of creativity and little depth of understanding in the
You know the topics, but your mind draws a blank. You perch there, perturbed about whether you will pass your grade. But why should these state created tests have such an influence on whether you pass your grade or not? How do these tests show a child’s full range of knowledge? Standardized tests should not be a requirement to pass certain grades as these tests display only a small range of knowledge, they don’t factor in reasons why a student might not perform well, and these tests provoke stress.
These two standards are highly debated and investigated amongst teachers, government officials, and parents to understand which standards will enhance student’s academic knowledge. Some state political boards do not agree with the new adoption if the Common Core Standards. After researching both standards and gaining my own opinion, I think to adopt the new Common Core Standards is a positive thing for our school systems. Even though it has some negative like difficult transition for students, standards are vague, and unequal access to technology in the classroom and at home (Meador, 2017). Even with all the cons associated with the Common Core Standards, I think the new Common
In college, we start to understand that this knowledge is not enough as to write flawlessly, you need to know more than just the structure of the essay and the ways to use resources in your writing. In this article, we are going to discuss essay writing habits that we acquire in school but that have nothing in common with high-quality writing. Moreover, we will give you several recommendations on how to turn these ineffective habits into the effective ones. Never paying attention to the subject of the essay
Common Core is the new standard of teaching in schools implemented by the federal government. State education chiefs and governors developed a set of standards that they believe students should know after each grade, so they are prepared for college or a job after high school. But are these standards fair for everyone? Not everyone learns at the same speed and some students require special attention. The cost of Common Core is also costly to the school districts.
The accountability of the scores is meant to encourage teachers to adopt better and more effective methods of teaching, as well as to urge students to work harder. However the effects are more detrimental. Because of testing, students are more likely to be frustrated and discouraged at having to move so fast to cover all the ground needed. If a student is having a bad day or just is not a good test taker, all anyone can say is “tough luck.” The teachers will only focus on the select subjects tested on, and then only the select aspects they believe will be covered in the testing. Depending on how desperate a teacher is for good test scores, inappropriate preparations can be made before testing, sometimes even to the point of cheating.
Farber also argues that I disagree with Farber’s viewpoint on the grading system and the effect on students. In Farber’s essay, he argues that the school grading system should be abolished. Farber argues that students do not retain everything. They only retain the information until the final exam than it is forgotten. He said, “What we get on our final is all-important; what we retain after the final is irrelevant.” He is saying that what we remember after the final is not important to our everyday life.
Standardized testing is actually putting a lot of pressure on students, families, teacher, and the school system. The reason why the pressure is rising is because a high score translate, the student is academically doing great, but a low score means possible evaluation needed. The concern for an evaluation for a student to be evaluated may not always be the case. A low score doesn’t meant evaluation, perhaps, it means more time needed. The
ABSTRACT: Professional development generally refers to ongoing learning opportunities available to teachers and other education personnel through their schools and other means of social interaction. Productive professional development is mostly visible as vital to school success and teacher satisfaction, but it has also been maligned for its expenditure, roughly determined goals, and the lack of data on resulting teacher and school improvement that characterizes many efforts. With schools these days facing an attire of complex challenges from working with an increasingly diverse population of students, to integrating new technology in the classroom, to meeting rigorous academic standards and goals—observers continue to stress the need for teachers
