Teaching the test seems to be conducive to improving test taking skills but real academic progression is not always represented. Additionally, Standardized testing is not an effective way to test the skills and abilities of today’s students. Standardized tests do not reveal what a student actually understands and learns, but instead only prove how well a student can do on a generic test. Schools have an obligation in a way to prepare students for life and with the power standardized tests have today, students are being cheated out of a proper valuable education and forced to prepare and improve their test skills. Too much time, energy, and pressure to succeed are being devoted to standardized tests.
If peers would motivate students more then that could help with procrastination. Peer pressure plays a big role in procrastination because a friend should be there to motivate students to do their assignments not pressure them to stop and continue later. Many students also procrastinate because of boredom. Students feel that some assignments don’t be interesting enough for them and that causes them to delay the assignment and put it aside. Sometimes students blame teachers for their procrastination because they feel the teacher is boring and not teaching right.
14, 2002, the Sacramento Bee reported that "test-related jitters, especially among young students, are so common that the Stanford-9 exam comes with instructions on what to do with a test booklet in case a student vomits on it." Another direct effect is high-test anxiety and low self-esteem for those students who have difficulty with the material. Many students have a hard time in some subjects while others excel in that specific subject. So is it fair to measure the amount of academic knowledge a student has by handing out a uniformed test? It’s not.
Standardized testing system creates an extremely competitive environment. Teachers and parents force students to be accomplishment. ıf student’s score are not well enough compare to others, parents and educators punish them. This pressure causes severe stress in younger students. According to education researcher Gregory J. Chick, the testing produces anxiety in unexpectedly for the brightest students and makes young children cry even sick.
Student’s may have an “off” day and not perform their best possible. Another con I that this testing causes many teachers to only teach what they know will be on the tests. This can lead to boring classrooms that lack creativeness because teachers are worried about what to teach instead of how to teach it. (ProCon 2014) Standardized Aptitude Test: a standardized test created to predict an individual’s ability to learn certain skills. One advantage of a standardized aptitude test would be that it compares students from different areas.
This gives children the impression that reading is dangerous, because they don’t want to make mistakes and lose the game. For example, when children are given reading assignments, such as reading aloud in class, they are forced to make mistakes in front of their peers, causing children to relate reading with feelings of humiliation. Coincidently, this has a negative effect on the student’s feelings and motives to read. They no longer feel the desire to read, because they have been pressured to overanalyze the text and draw multiple
When the students with disability hear that they can not cope with education, some think that they are already failures and that they can not understand anything in class. This affects teaching and learning process because the students develop bad attitudes towards learning. So even when the teacher tries to explain as much as she or he can, these learners can not understand because of that mentality that they are already failures. This also affects the teaching process in the sense that the teacher gets discouraged because of the poor performance of his or her students. If the students perform better the teacher gets encouraged otherwise the teaching process may be poor.
I'd rather get a failing grade that I earned, than a “no-zero” because of a policy. The policy basically is telling students that if they don't hand in assignments or do poorly on a test they won't get a zero, which isn't right. If schools are being too lenient on students it won't teach them how to work hard and discipline that they'll need in the future. I agree that school should “suck” because it'll be beneficial in the end to students and will help them become a well rounded individual. We all complain about how much school sucks, but there are so many kids in the world who would do anything for an
We had a couple practice writing tests and even though I tried I did not do very well on the tests. I was very nervous the day of the writing test, and I remember the prompt being pretty hard. When my teacher was calling out names to tell us our grades on the writing test, I was scared to know my score. It turned out I made a high three out of four, four being the best score to make. Throughout all my years of school with reading and writing, I never liked to read and write.
High school students nationwide are expected to take the widely despised SAT. The SAT is supposed to show the value of a student’s knowledge, but they fail miserably. A solid GPA says a lot more than one test. Something should be done. The SAT has caused much stress through the years, and for a useless purpose.
