Students are shown to have increased stress levels due to testing, for them it has become the ill fate of ‘all or nothing’. These tests have belittled student’s hearts, making them ultimately feel dumb. Young minds have plugged their creativity up, raised to only care about the future and that there
This is exactly what the Nazi troops or the Germans had to do to obey their higher power. The person conducting the experiment has interests to give orders to the teacher to conflict pain on the learner if the learner gets a wrong answer. This is exactly the same orders Hitler would give to his soldiers to hurt or exterminate the Jews. Even is the teacher didn’t want to hurt the learner, the person conducting the experiment would tell the teacher he is not held responsible to the wrong doing on the learner. With that the teachers would proceed.
Perils of Obedience Summary In Stanley Milgram’s Perils of Obedience, he explores how people react to authority, even when they are told to do something that they found immoral. He conducted multiple versions of his experiment, trying out different situations doing the same tasks. His first trial he started with his students, taking them in pairs of two. They were both given roles, the learner, and the teacher. The teacher was told that the object of the experiment was to study the effects of punishment on learning.
“The Perils of Obedience”, written by Stanley Milgram deals with social psychology experiments. The goal of these experiments was to measure the ability of a normal person to act in an immoral way. That was the case for instance during World War two when German Nazi committed huge atrocities on thousands of Jewish in the concentration camps. On the first hand, Milgram described the standard experiment that he organized in the Yale University. Generally two persons were participating in his experiments but only one is exposed, the Teacher.
Whenever the pupil answered incorrectly, the teacher was instructed to throw one of the switches, starting at the lowest voltage and progressing to the higher voltages. The pupil, of course, was not actually receiving shocks, but he would act out preplanned mistakes and feign pain upon receiving the "shocks." About midway through the series of switches, the "pupil" would complain loudly that he wanted to stop, kick the wall, and scream. At the highest levels of shock the pupil would remain silent. All the while, the experimenter, wearing a white lab coat and carrying a clipboard, would instruct the teacher to continue with the "learning experiment."
More so, it is being done internally by teachers (Falk, 616). The stakes are so high they manipulate test results by keeping certain students out of the testing environment. It has been reported that kids were purposely held back so that their performance will not bring down the test scores that the more intelligent students submit. I agree with that Lindsay Jillson argues about how standardized testing has jeopardized a student’s future because of the sanctions that are given to them for being less intelligent. I just do not understand why the main focus of our education has to be all about test.
Heid 1 Jennifer Heid Professor Harris English 1000 29, February, 2014 Final Draft Do you think there could be another event like the holocaust due to the amount of Obedience to an Authority figure? In Philip Meyers article, “If Hitler Asked You to Electrocute a Stranger, Would You?” A social psychologist named Stanly Milgram, working at Yale at the time, put his theory on obedience to the test. Milgram uses cause and effect to find his theory. Milgram uses actors to act a scene where the “ learner’ gets electrocuted by the “teacher” to show obedience to the authority figure. In addition, in Milgram’s theory of obedience, he uses “teachers,” which are the “subject” to authority.
Help teens get a grip on anger. Kingston Whig-Standard, (), . ProQuest This article was about a psychologist who facilitate different programs on anger management for youths.

Participants were falsely told that the experimenter would move the light. They had to estimate how far it had moved. It shown that participants were influenced by the estimates of other people, and a group norm developed. Estimates converged because participants used information from others to help them, they
