220-221) to determine the relationship between student motivation and academic success the results showed that self-efficacy, task value, internal goals and effort were proximal to academic success. The study concluded that above-mentioned variables equipped students with the relevant tools to deal with setbacks, diversions and the ability to focus more, have more self-confidence when writing examinations and ultimately achieve better test results. Christiana (2009, p. 34) who investigated student academic achievement in relation to motivation concluded that both internal and external ways should be employed to motivate students in the quest for academic success and the roles of instructors and family are integral to this success. 2.3 Academic
The content: knowledge skills and attitude we want children to learn; differentiating content requires that students are pretested so the teacher can identify the students who do not require direct instruction. The process: varying learning activities / strategies to provide appropriate methods for students to explore the concepts; important to give students alternative paths to manipulate the ideas embedded within the concept (different grouping methods, graphic organizers, maps, diagrams, or charts) (Thwaites 2017) in class power point presentation. The product :varying the complexity of the product that students create to demonstrate mastery of the concepts; students below grade level may have different performance expectations than students
Although the common belief is that certain aspects of school are important for an ideal education for all students, the main problems that need to be rectified as soon as possible include the lettered grading system and test scores as the main measure of achievement as well as a lack of disciplined and motivated in teachers who do their jobs correctly in order for their students to reach their full potential and excel in life. Out of all the issues with American education today, one of the most overvalued yet problematic for students is the grades and scores that represent their classroom proficiency and content knowledge. It is true that today, in the United States, the easiest and seemingly most reliable way to track student performance and rank schools by quality of education is by simply marking students based on their scores on assignments and assessments done in school or on standardized exams designed to measure mastery of content, and by comparing and analyzing the
In view of the above, each of the aforementioned aspects will be treated very succinctly, in order to enrich our research: From the psychological Speaking of school failure, somehow a value judgment is issued, which leads to discrimination and segregation of a group of students. There are many questions that arise about this problem and therefore it is necessary to make an analysis of some concepts that may be related to school failure. Within which the following could be considered: The intelligence Although there has been great controversy as to its concept, it can be defined as any behavior that aims at the conscious adaptation, selection and configuration of the environment according to the interests and needs of the
CHAPTER 2 • Cause/s of Failures Students get poor grades involve external factors, like the subject matter is too challenging that makes the students unable to follow in the discussion. The other reasons have to with poor attitudes, like not doing homework dillydallying, and skipping class. Lastly, there are reasons related to personal issues, such as test anxiety and concentrating problems. (Kurtus, 2012) • Student-related Factors • Not Ready for College Students aren’t prepared for post-secondary work and lack foundational skills that hinder to achieve passing grades. Many students don’t learn those skills in grade school and high school, that when they reach college they aren’t ready for the demands of being a college student (“Why Do Students Fail?
Giving importance with a certain variable can mean a big impact with the student’s academic performance. Several studies have been done to identify problems that affects student’s academic performance. The students’ academic performance depends on a number of socio-economic factors like students’ presence of trained teacher in school, teacher-student ratio, attendance in the class, sex of the student, family income, mother’s and father’s education, , and distance of schools (Amitava Raychaudhuri,
Does society play an influential role over students? The aim of this paper is to analyze the problem, provide answers to mentioned questions so we can finally try to understand the core of the problem. According to Moore, the reasons why students fail at school or even at University may be found within school or outside of it. Frank Haber points out that students are afraid of “feeling ashamed about one’s own inability and incompetence” They are also afraid of “ disappointing parents, receiving ridicule from classmates and losing the professor´s trust and support” What is more, as adults students are afraid of “having decrease the chances on the job market and decreased chances to have a decent income and appropriate social status” In connection with this, Holt refers to the
I found performance assessments are typically time consuming. When conducting the performance task, I will ensure that the task is clear to students. The project designed to typically take multiple steps, so students need to have prerequisite skills and cognition as well as clear instructions. Careful scaffolding is important for successful performance assessment. Scoring rubrics are provided to students before they work on the task.
Parenting practices are another common cause of poor student behaviour, according to researchers at The University of Science and Technology in Pakistan. According to their surveys, uncaring parents and overprotective parents both contribute to poor student behaviour, but inconsistent parenting was the most prevalent parenting-related contributor to misbehaviour (Cascio, C, n.d.). This results in many young people do not listen to their parents and teachers, being rude and actively rebelling against rules and regulations. For instance, parents might spend more time at work than at home and as a result, children will lack of
Underprivileged students have no access to resources like reading materials, lack of uniforms, lack of enough food and this may lead to uncompleted homework or assignments. The problem facing educators is helping students to achieve optimal learning that is the conceptual understanding and ability to apply the knowledge to learning. Teachers are not using teaching techniques that match different kids’ modes of learning. With negative attitudes from the teachers, this leads to poor quality teaching. There are many solutions to curbing the negative attitude towards students like incorporating technology in curriculum to increase students’ motivation to learn and improve their grades and talents.
