Should Schools Offer Cash Bonuses for Good Test Scores?

  • Money, MONEY, MONEY!!!!!

    Yes, I think that schools should offer cash bonuses for high test scores because frankly, people, or humans, only work hard for one thing, and one thing only... Money! Kids, either in elementary, middle school, or high school, only really try to work for money to get a higher test score than normal. I, myself, get high test scores already, like in between 85%-100% grades already... If they had this rule, I would already have $1,300 in my wallet or bank account.

    Two downsides...... First downside, where would the money COME from? I'd say from the government. Each time, and I mean each month, a government worker would come to the school to every class and drop off $40,000 for the teacher. Knowing the teacher is not greedy, they would have a recording book of the amount of money given away. Second downside, if the government runs out of money, students may or may not stop working hard and thinking of slacking so the teacher may have to postpone all tests if the government doesn't find a way to find money for students....

  • Yes, I think that schools should offer cash bonuses for good test scores

    I think that in schools below college level it would be beneficial to offer cash or gift cards as rewards for good test scores. I think it would motivate kids to work harder and to actually study to achieve good scores. I don't think this should be offered at college levels however, because college students are majoring in a certain field and they need to have the integrity to do good so they can become professionals in what they are majoring in.

  • Schools Should Offer Cash Bonuses for Good Test Scores

    Schools should offer cash bonuses for good test scores. Students would show dramatic academic growth in several school categories. Paying students money for good grades would embolden them to get improved grades. And by boosting students grades their future could brighten. Moreover, adults get paid for work, so students should too.

    According to Joe Nystrom, a math teacher at a low-income school, “Students work better if they have a wanted reason to work.” Student Jacob Hook showed remarkable growth when offered a cash bonus. Jacob was a “D” student but when offered a cash bonus he made honor role. Jacob was not only encouraged by the incentive but he acted on his encouragement landing him on the honor roll. Jacob displayed how students work harder if they are offered a reward. Kids are known to do many things if they are offered a prize. A cash bonus levels the playing fields between low-income students and high-income students who are usually already paid for exceptional grades.

    According to MDRC, an organization best known for evaluation cash incentives, “High school participants randomly selected for a test were 30% more likely to stay for another semester if offered a cash bonus.” Therefore a cash incentive would decrease the dropout rate of students. Moreover, students could save their earned money for a future college they want to attend. The cash incentive is meant to help students on their future road. Students often fall through a trapdoor of pressure. However, an incentive would relieve students pressure and restore students to do well in school.

    According to NCES, the National Center for Education, Coloradoan students are averagely at school for 7.01 hours every school day. And according to the CDLE, the department of labor and employment, the average Coloradoan adult works 8 hours per work day. Therefore students attend school nearly as long as adults work at their job. And while adults learn at their job students learn at school. Adults work at their job. And students work at school. Adults get paid. While students do not get paid. And don't adults perform better when a bonus or a promotion is at stake? Like adults, students work harder for money.

    A cash bonus for good test scores would give an incentive to perform better at school and keep students in school. Cash bonuses encourage students and give them a reward for their hard work. Students often do not do their work and are then drowned in a sea of stress. If cash bonuses were offered, students would be sure to meet deadlines. The cash bonus strengthens students future for their benefit.

  • Yes they should

    Money rewards would encourage students to study. Good grades are good for future schooling and career choices. Considering many kids these days are more interested in money, cash rewards would motivate students. Individuals do their best work when they are motivated, making the cash rewards a successful encouragement. Since your grades are a major factor throughout life, it is important to get high marks. Money rewards could assist in this goal.

  • Of Course They Should Get Money!!!

    For the kids who always try, this is a good incentive. It's not fair if they have to suffer because of the kids who want to cheat. That will only hurt them in life so let them do them. If they want to cheat, let them, but don't punish the kids who don't for their actions. That's not fair to everyone.

  • Hard working and generous teachers deserve more.

    Every teacher can get paid, but some are sarcastic and arrogant to go home. Teachers who care should get bonuses, not the slack jobs who have no care at all. I see great teachers everyday get disrespected and still have to go through with this. Good teachers, need more respect.

  • Yes they should

  • No, they shouldn't.

    There is no reason for this. For one, the school would have to actually be able to take in enough money to fund this, and if the money came from the government, well, that money still has to come from somewhere. The possible abuse of the system comes into play as well, for instance, cheating on a test. In addition, what tests are we even talking about? If we're talking about standardized testing, then cheating would have to be monitored even more severely than it is now, and if we're talking about tests in general classes, well, we're back to cheating again. All in all, the idea has to be refined considerably before it would ever be likely to work in practice.

  • No kids should not get paid for good test scores!

    I think kids should not get cash bonuses for good test scores because instead of kids getting motivated to study, kids will get motivated to cheat. Kid's grades will go from f's or d's to a's or b's by cheating of another kids paper. Plus, if a kid is not doing well and they don't get money meanwhile the smarter students get money the other students will feel left out.

  • No kids should not get money

    Because kids will work for the money . Say the kid goes to a new school and that school does not give money and that kid will fail and the parents will not be happy with the child . The kid is failing school . And may not get into a good collage then his or her life is all mess up!!! That is my opinon on why we should not have cash bonuses for good test soc res . :) :):):):):)

  • Are you stupid?

    Kids go to school to get an education, not a job...

  • No responsibility here

    If you give students money for passing in their classes than they will never really learn anything. Students would go from 50s to 90s but mainly because of cheating. If there is a cash motivation the only thing kids will want to do is earn that money no matter how they have to. Cheating would be the first option for them...Not studying. And if they are cheating then the students theirself would not be earning something that they deserve there fore the school would be just handing out money. School isnt somewhere you go to get money its where you go to learn.

  • Kids shuld not get bribed

    Schools are like trees Not everyone is a monkey, some people are like fish. That is the beauty of this country. We try to work where we like. To give cash out at school won't make a low-scoring student try harder, they already know the high scoring students will just be getting one more benefit than the other by Timothy from Rom 206
