If at any point they failed, they would see this as a big mistake and give up and have a lack of motivation. It can also be argued that working class children do not get the support of their parents, this is because many of the parents believe that they survived without an education, so believe that there children can do the same. Working class families can also lack in support in terms of if the child fails a particular exam, they would not give them positive feed back on how they could improve they would improve. Whereas, it can be argued that higher class families have more motivation and the parents also give the support to the children that is needed. This would have a positive influence on the child’s education as it would give them hope and not give them an opportunity of giving up.
Educational psychologists may use reasoning tests to assess an intellectual age in contrast to a chronological age. Information from colleagues and carers: Parents/carers who know the child and colleagues expertise are very useful, especially when planning for social and academic success for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities. If we are concerned about child's development it's good to ask/share information. For example, if a child has not progressed for a while in their assessments or levels, we will call the parents in to talk about our concerns with the child and hopefully try and get them to work with us to help the
Difficulty with reading and writing If a child is having problems with reading and writing this could cause concern. This could be recognised, as a child would be at a delayed rate to the rest of his/her peers. This could affect the child’s /young person’s behaviour/social development...Low self esteem and loss of confidence may be a result. With peers of the same being more advanced ridicule and bullying may result Learning to communicate is one of the main skills a child needs to help them develop in all areas. They can quickly fall behind from peers of the same age.
For example they may use growth assessments to measure and assess the children’s height, weight and head circumference, auditory assessments to monitor and assess the children’s levels of response, reasoning assessments to monitor and assess children’s reasoning carried out by educational psychologists, cognitive aptitude assessments to monitor and assess children’s intelligence and they are widely carried out in schools. The assessment framework is the way in which a child is assessed to determine whether they are in need and what the nature of those needs is in order to meet their needs appropriately. In
This can be a result of laziness or even shame. Often times, a rough home life may be the reason for a child to do poorly academically. These days, many children do not have what used to be considered a common home life, with two parents in the home. In these situations, the student should not be allowed to coast through school with nothing but sympathy. Instead, the child’s home life should be taken into consideration, and dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
Monitoring and assessing a child's early development is crucial as it has been seen that early intervention can make a huge difference to a child's overall outcome. For example a child with hearing difficulties will find it hard to understand language unless the correct support is given early on. In education, there are specific frameworks against which children's development is measured, particularly in details to do with academic progress and performance. Good examples of frameworks are The Early Years Foundation Stage Profile or for children with learning difficulties the P-scales. Observation is watching the children.
There are some major problems with using them. Students with high I.Q’s are expected to do better than the rest of their class, and on the flip side students with low I.Q.’s are expected to do worse. That is not always fair because students with low I.Q.’s might not get the attention needed simply because their teachers do not expect much from them. In the end there is no fairness to some. This leads to an ethical question of, is giving an intelligence test ethical?
Does standardized testing improve education in public schools? Terrie Lynn Bittner the author of Homeschoolers Should Not Take Standardized Test would argue that it has not been proven that these tests help public school students. The author states that testing is nothing more than routine memorization and not true learning. So, homeschoolers shouldn’t have to take standardized tests because the parents do not need testing to see their children’s progress. With homeschooling, the parents are the ones teaching their children, so they know their progress, strengths and weaknesses.
Like I have mentioned in the previous paragraph, schools only have limited power when it comes to bullying. This is because many schools don’t always know what happens and if they are also just making it up. Most kids may do this in order to use as an excuse for lack of academic performance. It’s difficult for a school to take action if the bullied students don’t speak up. This is why I believe that it’s not the schools fault.
As a result, children could fail their exam or could not find a job in the future. In addition, the author also argues that it is difficult to control children through texting. Children usually use the messages as codes to hide some things. As a result, parents hardly to understand and control their children. Both authors mention the using of abbreviations in messages.
