  • T ests should be banmned

    Children are told 'you are not clever' if you do not remember the correct equations, if you do not remember what molecules make up compounds or why the presidencies of American presidents changed the Vietnam War. We are not measured on intellect; we are measured on memory.

    Why should a student who turns up every lesson, excited to learn, with an IQ higher than most, get a lower grade than a student who studies a week before the exam and passes with a high grade? It is not fair to determine a 16 year old for life on a one hour exam.

    You could say that 'if you didn't understand it in the exam, you will never pass' but can you remember how many atoms make up a sodium atom, or how to find out x using the cosine rule? I doubt it.

    Your grade should be determined on your effort, your cleverness and your enthusiasm to learn.

    My friend is an A* student in Maths, however if I were to ask her right now to find the missing side of a triangle using the sine rule she could not do it. However, give her time to revise it and hand her an exam, she could do it within a minute. This clearly demonstrates that exams are unfair and all they do is segregate the students into good memory and bad memory, not who is smarter.

  • I think that tests should be banned from school because if teachers can't teach us the amount they need don't put it in a test.

    Because if teachers and staff think that most students should be getting a test most weeks then kids should have the right to have an opinion on weather they should or should not, in my school we takes test every week, and all the kids don't like it at all, That's why tests should be banned from all schools.

  • Yes! They should be banned!

    The inventor of standardized testing, Fredrick J. Kelly, stated " these tests are to crude to be used." Which in other words, the tests are too harsh and shouldn't be used during school systems. Judging a student based on test scores is the same thing as judging a farmer on it's crop, not appointing any droughts, freezes, or disease.

  • They waste our time

    • It is a waste of time because most of the stuff in tests we already know and in that time the teacher could be teaching us something new 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 they should be banned

  • How are we going to know…

    The point of tests are to know where your child's level is at in spelling, maths, english ect. And to stop tests, teachers will struggle to find your skill level, which means you're more than likely to be mistaken by level and you will be handed the wrong sheet and it won't suit your skill, it will be to easy or too hard.

  • We need a progress metric.

    Tests are a useful way of measuring the progress of a student, and there's no reason at all that I can think of that would require them to be banned. What might be banned, however, is the increasingly bizarre lesson plans that schools devise to teach students to pass the test, instead of teaching them curriculum that can be tested. Maybe that won't make sense if you're not an educator, but believe me, it's a big issue.

  • Tests should not be banned in schools.

    Tests are an important part of the school experience.In a school environment the only good measure of performance is testing.It is also more fair than other methods because it tends to be more objective.It also prepares the student for stressful situations outside of school such as job imterviews and deadlines.

  • Tests show mastery of learning

    Tests are a good way for teachers to get a snapshot of what students know at any particular time. They should not be banned because they are important tool for a teacher trying to discern what they taught well, what they didn't teach well, and where they can improve. Tests shouldn't be the only assessment tool, but they should not be banned.
