NO TO MONTHLY EXAMINATION!

This petition had 125 supporters


Examination is a formal test of a person's knowledge or proficiency in a particular subject or skill.

YES! IT IS TO TEST OUR KNOWLEDGE.

But, is it really trustworthy in testing our knowledge?

NO.

In my opinion, it is not.

Students have no input regarding on how or what they learn, and they are alienated from the works they do at school. In school, what matters the MOST is their GRADES. Even by hooked or crooked, to improve their grades in the environment they belong, where failure is not an opportunity for learning, but rather a badge of shame. Students always think of what would their grades be, and not the knowledge and wisdom they have learned because we all know that we will be JUDGED BY OTHER PEOPLE and get criticized if their grades were low.

When students had a very low grades on a test, there is no reason for students to review the same reviewers ever again, because they will likely never be tested on the same thing ever again. 

Test Taking itself is a poor reflector of usable intellect.

THE TEST ITSELF IS LARGELY ARBITRARY AND OFTEN NOT MEANINGFUL ANYMORE.

Educators might have stressed the REAL VALUE of "learning" over grades, but that is a completely mistaken belief. When learning, it is NOT commensurately represented by grades, but students rightly feel cheated by the system and become apathetic.

YES.

CHEATING IS BAD.

It is so unethical, promotes bad habits that they could bring in the future and cause a big impact in their self-esteem through the attainment of an award through a dishonesty moves.

BUT DO SOME OF THESE CONSIDERS THE FEELING OF THE STUDENTS OF BEING ASHAMED BECAUSE OF THEIR LOW GRADES?

NO, THEY DON'T.

None of these concerns are even remotely valid because none considers the environment. They are deprived of any power over their own lives, including the ability to pursue their interests, and are subjected to a barrage of tests that have consequences for each WRONG answers.

Punishing students for being poor test takers or for not retaining pertinent information in a one-size-fits-all style serves no purpose, to me.

WE SHOULD TAKE STEP TO HELP ONE ANOTHER.

Do not let schools defined us with examinations, but through our knowledge learned!

NO TO MONTHLY EXAMINATION!

 

Take a step.

 

Take risks.
