In addition, this is definitely not the case for every situation, but the way of thinking when it comes to standardized test scores often deal with the level of knowledge one might posses. By now you have probably seen my test scores, which are pretty low. However, my test scores do not define how knowledgable I am. Instead, these tests highlight how unsuccessful I am when taking timed tests. For me, when I am in an ACT or SAT testing session, my mind is running wild with formulas and strategies that I may use, yet I still
Activity#1: The Pros and Cons of Testing from Two Perspectives Standardized testing is advantageous in many ways. One of the most important benefits is that standardized testing holds teachers and schools responsible for teaching students what they should know, since the student’s achievements in these tests become public record and schools and teachers can come under scrutiny if the scores indicated that they aren’t up to the par. It also guides teachers and helps them determine what to teach and pinpoint and determine the gaps where the student needs to invest more time and effort in order to fill it. Standardized tests are considered practical because they consume less time (all the test-takers do the test at the same time). Testing has
3: In my opinion, standardized testing is beneficial but also flawed. I agree they’re non-discriminatory because the content is equivalent for all students, but teachers are “teaching to the test,” leaving out additional learning opportunities. From experience, I believe the tests are
Because of the pattern of dressing and the required respective attires, a student will no longer worry about what to wear for the day. As stated in the article School Dress Code Pros and Cons List (2015), having a dress code lessens the time that the student spends in trying to pick out their clothes for school, which gives more time for activities such as eating breakfast, doing assignments and arriving at school on time. The student’s focus is now centered on other relevant and important things rather than trivial matters which only delay his or her actions towards the day. With the dress code policy, a student will no longer feel anxious about his or her respective clothes because of the awareness it brings; that the student is part of a group or is one with a lot of people. This lessens differentiation and nervousness, which then results to the student being able to do his or her list of activities.
Do you struggle with taking tests? Do you wish that you never had a take a test again, well so do I? Standardized testing is a topic that many people would argue. Some people believe that all kids should be required to take these tests and that standardized testing is a good thing, but others argue that it puts too much pressure on kids. I believe that it puts too much stress on kids and it doesn’t show their full potential.
Even if a student knew how to work out these problems, the time limit would either prevent them from answering correctly, or rush them to the point of messing up. In my opinion, the presence of a rushed, anxious mind, sweaty palms, and racing heart rate is not the greatest time to judge a person 's abilities. Now, if I was doing simple addition on this test, I would finish it in no time. Instead, the ACT gives questions that take an eternity to solve. This results in me having to put the most aesthetically pleasing answer for the last 20 questions that I never have the time to do.
However, I still get nervous before every race, but after my first race, I learned how to use those nerves and fear to push me to run faster rather than hold me back. I have the same feeling when I’m taking an important test that I studied all night for and I know all of the answers. Instead of letting my brain shut down because of fear that I’m going to fail the test, I tune out all of the bad “what if” ideas that fear feeds my mind and only focus on the task at hand. I learned that if I focus on the present, instead of something that could possibly happen in the future, the fear of the future goes away. If we can disprove the existence of fear in our lives, then we can go on with our
Standardized testing is important in schools, with this testing they can figure out what kids need more time on to learn. This testing can help your child in many ways, when taking it and getting results back the teacher can help your child with anything that they are struggling
The third example is preferring of deliberateness more than haste. I like to be successful person and pass my exams. When I have any exam, I feel of worry and tension about it, so I answer some questions without of thinking about them carefully. I just answer them hastily to finish the exam and get rid of tension. So, here is a shifting which sometimes impacts on my grades.
The test is “cheating” telling us a potential answer. Sophie states,”It takes up too much of our class time, and interferes with our after-school activities.” We spend so much time taking these tests, we get so stressed, which makes us not as focused on our extra-curricular activities. Such as, dance, football, and soccer, sports that are often are affected by SBAC testing. “I think that, we are always eager in the United States to do a better job of measuring how much students are learning, and it’s a very difficult thing to do. I think if we knew how to measure intelligence, we would’ve figured that out by now.
This gives the teacher and the paraeducator the opportunity to discuss the performance in real time. It allows them to view it and make suggestions immediately. Then these suggestions could be followed by reenacting the scenario implementing the new strategy suggested by the teacher. This also will help the paraeducator get a clearer picture of exactly what the teacher is wanting. While I agree that ongoing assessments should be conducted, it seemed to be a little degrading for the paraeducator that the authors suggest positive feedback immediately.
Students have to worry about studying and knowing everything they were taught. After studying all of the given information, they take the test and realize that a lot of what they studied was not on the test. Education researcher Gregory J. Cizek has said, “illustrating how testing...produces gripping anxiety in even the brightest students…” Standardized testing stresses teachers out because they have to make sure they teach everything they need to by a certain date. They run on a strict teaching schedule when teaching students that will be taking a standardized test. Some students don’t take standardized tests seriously because it doesn’t affect their grades.
