The short quizzes for each lesson in this section are not comprehensive and not very difficult. Normally, only basic, superficial questions are asked. The general philosophy here is for the specter of a quiz to always be hanging over the student where he knows he must quickly acquire a general working knowledge of the subject but at the same time knows he will not be asked in-depth or tricky questions. It is hoped that this gentle, but persistent pressure, will encourage the student to keep current with …show more content…

One of the main controversial disputes regarding education is if test taking is actually a beneficial form of a learning technique for students. Within the context of Henry L. Roediger III’s article, How Tests Make Us Smarter, Roediger goes into depth upon how giving students “low-stakes quizzes” could help improve their memory as well as consistent and spread out practice. Psychology In Action, written by both Karen Huffman and Katherine Dowdell, also restates similar learning techniques within their first chapter.
It was found that the more a student attempted a quiz, that higher the student’s grade on the quiz became. There are several reasons that take credit for this. The first reason is that taking a quiz for the first time gives a student a better idea of the material that the quiz covers, so if a student attempts the quiz again he/she will be more prepared. The second reason is
This test/quiz would give me an indication of the comprehension level regarding the lesson over the southern colonies. These questions cover all of the southern colonies; hence giving me feedback as to whether the students fully understand the main ideas/concepts regarding the southern colonies. If the students perform well enough on this assessment we would move on to the next lesson. However, if the students performed poorly I would need to go back and cover the topics again as well as reassess their knowledge on these topics before moving on to the next lesson or giving an exam over the unit. This test/quiz is a great way to gauge how well I did at teaching the lesson on the southern colonies. If students do poorly, then I must reassess
In classrooms all across America, students sit perched over their desks in the process of taking standardized tests. As the students take the tests, teachers pace nervously up and down the rows of their classroom, hoping and praying that their students can recall the information which they have presented. Some children sit relaxed at their desks, calmly filling in the bubbles and answering essay questions. These children are well prepared and equipped to handle their tests. Other children, however, sit hunched over their desks, pondering over questions, trying to guess an answer. They struggle to recall information that has been covered many times in class, but they can’t.

Historically, societal developments in school children have created generations of adults to misunderstand the basis and reasoning for specific answers. Reform in education is necessary. Students aren’t learning but they are instead remembering. Exams and tests are simply testing a student’s memory knowledge from a textbook instead of generating natural and insightful responses from a student’s point of view in their knowledge of a subject. One way to ultimately counter the idea of students revolving around a concept of memory in exams is to shape classrooms back to the original Socratic method.
3. Unclear instructions and 'unstable' syllabus: The syllabus changed its grading part. The weight of teaching portfolio increased to 20% in total grades. However, the teaching did not mention that in class neither canvas did not reflect this change. Another example is that the instruction is not clear. A paper assignment's e max page should be 3-4 pages. It is difficult for me to

Unfortunately in modern time, students are more concerned to pass a test, than actually learning the material. It’s inconsiderate for schools to feel that throwing test after test will predict and showcase a student’s intelligence. “Most current U.S. standardized tests include only multiple-choice questions and provide no way for students to explain their thinking, says Swartz, of the National Center for Teaching Thinking. “So if a student answers (d) and that's correct, it still raises the question, ‘Is he
In every industry experts are needed to teach others certain skills, give advice, and use strategies to solve problems. Individuals can attain expertise by focusing on a particular skill to improve. It is said that “experts are made and not born,” so expertise is not attained in one day, but takes practice and time and individuals also attain expertise at different rates performance levels. Experts develop cognitive processes that result in their high levels of performance, “Extensive practice can develop expertise in high level skill (Anderson, 2010). Acquired knowledge and skills are needed to attain expertise. This material will discuss
