However, Alonso bases her argument on inferences she has drawn from her own personal experiences. For example, a professor will not always admit when they have failed to teach a topic, or acknowledge when they are grading with frustration behind their red pen. Alonso’s conclusions would carry more weight if she were to base them on research. Overall, Alonso has constructed a strong argument about the advantages to examinations that accounts for the different points of view teachers and students
In Alfie Kohn’s argument, “Who’s Cheating Whom?” he explains that cheating happens because students are not engaged in class because of a few different factors, like a lack of interest in a subject, or the pressures of getting good grades instead of learning. He states evidence from different experiments, allowing him to appear more credible, showing that students are more likely to cheat because their school puts more emphasis on how well students do on tests and homework versus how much is being learned in class. Kohn effectively argues that if students were truly engaged in what is being taught, and learning was more encouraged than memorizing and passing a test, cheating would be less of a problem. In simplest terms, cheating is wrong because teachers cannot accurately assess how much is being learned in class, and what they need to improve on the next time they teach that lesson.
In the lives of every single person, education is being taught in a variety of ways. (The Value of Education). By learning through experiences and communicating with each other. As the growth of maturity and intelligence develops, education is proving to be the key to a better future. After high school, the big decision will be decided whether college is worth the choice and, yes it is.
Cheating, plagiarizing, and taking credit for another’s work is usually frowned upon, but the honor code was created to prevent these acts from occurring. Honor codes are different from school to school and are commonly not followed. The honor system was created to convey that when you lie about accomplishing something yourself, you will be penalized for it. Honor code systems should be revised because of the lack of student involvement, the lack of confidentiality, and the burdensome consequences. To begin with, student involvement plays a huge role on campuses.
Her threshold of patience will also be very low and could get easily angry with other students as well. On the other hand, the other students are also heavily impacted by Jimmy’s behaviour. Every child is entitled to an education in a safe and secure environment, which is free from frequent disruptions. When Jimmy displays challenging behaviour and disrupts the class often, tension will build up in class.
A number of high schools, colleges, and universities have adopted an honor code to cultivate integrity amongst students at their institution. These principles vary from cheating to tardiness, to plagiarism and have garnered praise from multiple outlets for apparently being successful in preventing cheating and enforcing punishment for those who break the rules. However, others like myself, criticize the honor code due to skepticism in its abilities to prevent such rule breaking, its success in being enforced, and whether it would actually convince a student to not cheat. If Windham High School were to establish an honor code, it would be a failure given that it would not encourage students to abstain from breaking it. Academic institutions
In conclusion, Rojstaczer is effective in utilizing rhetorical situations, ethos, and pathos in his article. However, he is ineffective in using logos to persuade his audience on why grade inflation is wrong and is need of their participation to initiate
In a way this is some colleges cheating in ranking and on grades. Sometimes it’s not really about the grades, but the knowledge that students are able to bring with them and apply it to their future job. Colleges are supposed to prep students for the world ahead of them and help
Some families are performance oriented and so demanding that you have to do well in class, get a good grade and hence get a nice job. This pressure is one of the most dangerous of all since the student will not be having someone to run to when things get tough and hence being a big-time pressure to the college student. Peer pressure. It is said we do not choose family, but we choose friends.
Whenever rules are made, there’s always a way around them. Rules and codes have to be followed but at the same time their flawed. Students and staff members over time learn to get around certain things that can get them in trouble. Without actually breaking the honor code, individuals are able to manipulate it after getting a good sense of the
Plus, if she engages in gossip, it makes it hard to tell other people not to gossip. In this case she is not being a good example. When I was grade chair a year ago, I remember being called into her office and being told to inform my grade we need to stop gossiping. Looking back on the situation, of course we did not fully stop, especially when we still see our school leader indulging in the practice of
Some professors evidently feel the need to help these students, which they should but, not just pass the Sooleem students because they don’t speak English well. The pass-fail system will not allow for professors to be biases and will show if the student really put the effort in and earned the pass. The professors should also be there to clarify lectures and assignments. At Grassi Noll, the professor said they wouldn’t be able to help because of their scholarly pursuits, which is understandable, they have busy schedules and are bound by contracts that require scholarly pursuits but, they still have an obligation to help the students if they have questions about that professor’s class and provide assistants and resources to students. With that said, just because the students sit in silence and don’t understand English doesn’t mean they get to just give a passing grade that they did or didn’t earn.
Gutting and Edmundson both blame the structure of the education system, but at the same time it sounds like the change needs to come only from students. In their book I wouldn’t always be their “ideal” student that is depending on the classes they would teach me. Like Gutting said colleges sometimes give unnecessary courses, so it can be hard to be interested in something that in no way relates to your major. If one of the authors were instructors in one of my unnecessary” classes they probably would make comments that I’m “weak minded” or “not genius”. However, if they taught in one of my classes that I actually have an interest in I might have a shot of being their perfect student they have conversations about on the
Unfortunately, some teachers are more lenient than other when applying this rule. There is an inconsistency with the punishment of some cheating instances over others. For example, Laurel has strict rules on cheating on standardized tests. Because there is such a huge spotlight public schools to perform well on standardized testing, administrators take extra precaution to avoid any incidents that may blemish their appearance, such as a student caught cheating, thus invalidating the test scores of every other student in the area. While this is an effective protocol, it should also be applied in areas outside of testing, like homework for example.
People presume that cheating/plagiarism is an okay thing to do because no one really informed it on them. Knowing the consequences will give people a reality check on life. Even though people do not see the real problem with because they complete the assignment. Being able to know is going on in class
