As well as factors that may affect learning and troubles that a student may have with concentrating and remembering information, a student’s grades should not measure his or her intelligence because of the difference between intelligence and effort that not everyone understands. People who pressure others about their grades must realize that getting good grades on a test or in a class will not mean anything if they cannot apply the material that they learned
It will only cause negative outcomes on the pupils performance. Teachers should not assign homework to students as it will cause negative changes in the academic performances. Kids should not have to do homework, as homework can lower test scores, have no effect on academic performances, and cause stress/ worry. To begin with students should have non homework as it can lower test scores. Richard Walker, an educational psychologist at Sydney University states,” Data shows that in countries when more time is spent on homework students score lower on Standardized testing.” This leads to show that homework is not beneficial to students, rather the opposite.
"Contrary to popular assumptions about standardized testing, the tests do a poor job of measuring student achievement" (Harris 1). Standardized testing cannot accurately show the academic abilities of a student. Standardized tests only measure a fraction of what a student has learned. Such tests can persuade a superficial thinking mindset. "Studies indicate that standardized tests reward superficial thinking and may discourage more analytical thinking" (Harris 2).
Unlike the novels studied in the current school curriculum, this book has been read by many students on their own, it uses basic language, and has no historical value. Because of these important factors, the novel should not be studied. Furthermore, because of the points given, students may not pay attention or learn anything new if this novel was to be studied. Some students could lose their interest in reading in general if the curriculum changed to a more popular genre. The novel “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins is not a book worthy of being studied in
Machines. Can a machine identify one detail that entails innovation or originality? If there is anything compelling to a student’s understanding of the world, it is guaranteed it will not be on a standardized test. Former U.S President Barack Obama said, “Teachers should not be forced to spend the academic year preparing students to fill in bubbles on standardized tests.” Students have only limited time be dedicating their precious minutes for these tests instead of doing something that revolutionizes the world. However, with standardized testing still in place, there is no presence of authentic learning.
Many times students stop doing the things they like and that are important (play and exercise) to prepare for these kind of tests (Columbia University). Standardized tests are not a decisive measure because what is supposed to define one´s future and many other important decisions in life should not be affected by events that cannot be controlled such as external factors and health issues. Being something that is
Schools should not be teaching them how to fill in bubbles on a test and brain washing them that these scores will make or break the rest of their lives. Standardized testing should be cut down in schools across America in grades k-12 since they cause easy avoided stress over the grades, they do not improve students abilities, and the system used is harmful to education. The stress caused by these standardized tests can be really easily avoided. The problem with this is that students tend to obsess the letter grades they get on the tests and they obsess too much to the point where they disappoint themselves and their parents if the get a bad grade on the tests. Testing should never be this way, but it still is and we are not doing anything about it.
This kind of testing is not unnecessary for the student because they will not get anything that can use in real life. Most of the student just only learn to take the test and then after they taking it they just forgot it, so what the main point of having mandatory testing. The topic that the school has been teaching some of them were out of syllabus that means even they learn ,they will not get anything from it so why this kind of thing have to be taught to student?. It also makes the student wasting money because the school only teach a basic lesson but the test was using an advanced lesson that is too hard for them so they have to pay for an extra class outside the school to find the way to get more knowledge that enough for the test. Also, the student have to pay for the test registration that I cost money and this kind of test actually the student needs to sign up for more than one subject and some are so expensive such as TOEFL and IELTS.
Meanwhile, if they are unable to participate, some parents can also feel out of loop as their schedules don’t match with the schedule of the meetings. (Gunt, n.d) But according to Robinson, K. & Harris, A. (2014), there is no relation between parental involvement and academic performance. They do not actually increase the achievement of the student and to some extent involvement actually becomes a hindrance. There was no increment in the child’s scores and parents are ineffective and are actually making the performance worse when they get involve in homework.
Research has shown, however, that knowing grammar rules does not necessarily result in good speaking or writing. A student who has memorized the rules of the language may be able to succeed on a standardized test of English language but may not be able to speak or write
