They try to improve their score because everybody else has a better one than them so they feel they are not good enough. 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.
Bless the Test: Supporting Standardized Testing I. Introduction Preparing young Americans for success starts in a classroom. According to the website Edglossary, “ a standardized test is any form of test that requires all test takers to answer the same questions or a selection of questions from a common bank of questions, in the same way” (“Standardized Testing”). This means that all students taking the standardized test have equal opportunity of achievement and promotion. The U.S. Department of Education mission is to “promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering education excellence and ensuring equal access” (“Progress in Our Schools”).
Standardized Testing hurts children who think in different ways. This is quoted by Valerie Strauss, who makes a great point by saying children can only learn by the way it 's taught and it cannot be learned from other sources. Standardized Testing limits what children can learn and how they learn. Schools also spend an extraordinary amount on testing that could be going to better education and more funding to arts and extracurricular activities. Although, some say standardized testing is beneficial to the way students learn, statistics show that this is simply not true, standardized testing adds unnecessary stress on students, suppresses their creativity, and limits the creativity of teachers.
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.
In America, most colleges require you to take the SAT or ACT. It is all the same tests that measure “college readiness and predicts student success,” according to Harvard University. They have a working system and most colleges accept these test scores. “Proponents say standardized tests are a fair and objective measure of student achievement, which they ensure teachers and schools are accountable to taxpayers, and that the most relevant constituents approve of testing,” according to pro-con.org. Standardized test are necessary because not all tests are equal, and we need a common test.
I believe that it puts too much stress on kids and it doesn’t show their full potential. Kids could be amazing writers, be very creative, have outstanding leadership, but these tests don’t show any of these talents. Standardized testing should not be required in school. Standardized testing is a test or tests that require all students to answer the same questions in a certain amount of time all the same way. The questions do not have to be high stakes tests, time limited, or multiple choice.
If educators can study more effectively by themselves, then there is no need for extra class. Some educators study by the test-practicing given by the official website.In SAT official website, there are 8 sets of test for educators to practice consists of every sections from 1 to 4 including the timer similar to the real test also after finish all 4 sections the scores and the answers keys will be shown to the educators. According to Hughes, standardised tests give excellent objective indicators of educators performance. The standardised tests are designed to measure how well the educators learned the skills important to meet the international standards. In this regard, they are incredibly effective because the tests are written, administered, and scored in the same way regardless of educators or schools.
“Kids should be satisfied with the warm fuzzy feeling of accomplishment.” Is this possible when being paid for good grades? When paid for good grades, students are no longer learning for a better future, but rather just for the reward of money. If the purpose of school is to educate, does the prize of cash take that away? From students feeling not needed pressure, to taking away the natural motivation to learn, to not remembering the material presented, students should not be paid for good grades. First of all, students should not be paid for good grades due to not needed pressure.
Proponents see standardized testing as a way of making testing more efficient and effective by minimizing cost and increasing people’s accountability for their performance in the system. Opponents on the other hand argue that the systems has limitations based on its very nature on what can be tested and as a result of these standards needing to be met sacrifice some very important aspects of students education experience as well as force onto students and teachers a one size fits all model that has failed to deliver on its promises. After having reviewed all the evidence in detail it becomes clear to me that standardized testing is not an effective system for educating students and does more bad than good
Students should be motivated by rewards other than money. In the future, grades are not the most important standard. In fact, for most adults, the objective of their occupation is not to earn good grades. Also, getting paid for good grades would make students less likely to do volunteer work because they would be so accustomed to being rewarded with money after doing something well. More importantly, students will lose focus on the fact that education and experience, not money, is their
