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.

  • Yes, it is a good incentive.

    Yes, schools should offer cash bonuses for good test scores, because that models the working world. In the real world, people who perform better get paid more. Often, their effort makes them perform better, but not always. This teaches students to work hard, because they know that there are real, tangible rewards to hard work.

  • 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

    Bonus they will be moree to class and do their work.They will want to come to school and practice for thee test so they can get better test scores and get paid.Most kids and teens(not all) now days all they want is money.If you offer them money then the are more motivated to focus and do well on the test.If they do well on the test giving the a cash bonus the first time will motivate them to do it all again.

  • They definately should

    Kids would try way harder on tests and get much better scores. Also kids would study more and spend more time in the library or other places. Some people might argue that they are already getting bribed with scholarships however, even just a few dollars would really push them to try.

  • Yess they should

    Students should get cash bonuses for good test scores because that inspires students to try get better grades in school. Also just in case the school district runs out of money an agent could send 500,000 dollars and give that amount of money to the school district. Next they split the money then they send the money to the school after that the principle would call the students up to his or her office to claim their prize for the good effort then the same thing happens over and over again. There is one downside to this claim what if the government ran out of money and the money stop coming in will the students stop working their hardest?

  • 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.

  • Schools should not offer cash bonuses.

    Schools should not offer cash bonuses for good test scores. This would make more of the students try and get better test scores, but there would be consequences. Taxes would have to be raised in order to pay the students, and what are scholarships for? To pay the students. If they get a good test score, then they can earn a scholarship. If they get a scholarship, then they don't have to pay for something. They are also able to attend a better college if they get a higher test score. This leads to better paying jobs, which enables them to make more money..

    Also look at what the average person must do. In order to pay for these bonuses, more taxes would have to be put into effect. This would lead to most people paying extra money to people they don't even know, and probably won't ever meet. People would not like this because it would be the money they earned paying the random people who get good test scores. This would make it so that they would be spending money with no gain for them, which would cause a significant number of complaints about the waist of money, because of the fact that most people are selfish.

    Students would try harder, but only because there was an immediate award attached to it. They would not learn how to work for no immediate reward, as they would just studying for the test. This is an important lesson for college because there are no immediate rewards in college. Everything you do there you do trying to get in a position for a good job after college. Therefore, there are no immediate rewards.

    Overall, giving students rewards for good test scores is an extremely bad idea. It costs the average person extra money, which they would rather spend on their own things. It also does not allow the students to learn an extremely important lesson for college, which is how to work on something with no immediate reward. This leads to them struggling in college more than people who have learned this lesson. Lastly, it indicates that test scores are the most important thing, and that you can make your way through life by just getting good grades on tests, which is untrue. You will not be having multiple choice question tests like in school once you get a job. You will have to actually apply what you have learned. You might have to use algebraic expressions in order to figure out how much food you will need on a seven day camping trip.

  • 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 for good test scores.

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

  • Are you stupid?

  • 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.
