Would posting students' grades publicly in schools motivate them to perform better?

  • Posting students s

    Posting student grades could be discriminatory, Towards their economic status etc.

    Having a bad grade could lead to depression or anxiety

    Most professionals believe that posting your grades will lead to the points above

    If people do get a good grade, They will boast on other students which will have the students have depression and anxiety

    Having your grade publicly shown could be more unmotivating because of the stress it’ll put on students

  • This would help

    Posting students grades would motivate them because kids like competition. And if hey see that they got a bad grade and some other person got a good grade they would want to try and beat their classmates’ grades. So, The cycle would keep on going repeatedly. And the teacher could even say that the student with the best grade at the end of the week will get a treat. Then that would start a fun competition in your class by who could get the best grade possible. Its survival of the fittest so we need to prepare them for the real world. Life has always been about survival, And why shield them away from that. A person on Debate. Com states, “If an F- student sees his grades posted right next to a straight A student's grades, He/ she will most likely start competing with that student and this will bring up the grades. ”

    So, This is a great concept to do if you’re a teacher. I would personally do this for my students. It is better for students to have fun, But still in a learning environment. So

  • It is motivational.

    The naysayers seem to think that individual students are being identified. This is false because it is against the law. Grades posted using anonymous code numbers allows each student to see his or her grade relative to the whole class. The mean, Median, And grade distribution should not be a mystery. Students need to know just how good or bad they really are. The self-esteem model of education has produced and is producing the worst educated students this country has seen in modern times.

  • Helps Students know where they are in their class

    -Students grades don't have to be posted. There could be a system where students are ranked on what grade they get. The person with the best score would be at the top of the list and the worst at the bottom.
    -The first 5 students grades could be shown so the other students don't get humiliated.
    -And there could be another board where the students last grades are taken into account so if someone was a straight A student and they suddenly get a D, They would still be somewhere on the top so the fall in placing isn't such a shock.
    -Students would also be required to continuously study hard and all their hard work in all subjects would be taken into account.

  • Yes - it likely would.

    Many students play games (e. G. , Video games, Sports, Etc. ). While they play these games, Usually they are being competitive and trying to win (e. G. , To get the highest score on an online multiplayer game or to become noticed as a great basketball player, Etc. ). So, It's reasonable to assume that this competitive behavior would translate over to the school setting. Some students are already competitive, But if grades were made public, It's plausible to think that a couple more students will become more competitive at reaching the top of the "scoreboard".

  • Motivation and stuff

    If they start getting bullied then its their fault for not trying hard enough on the test and should start studying more and not wasting their time on games and friends or dodo like that sure it may seem harsh but it'll push them or they can try impressing people they want to impress

  • People, Are you serious

    Since you are so afraid of posting marks, Why don't you tell your parents about this? I guess if you did so, Most of you won't be alive by now. And there's a better way to die, Tell your parents you don't want to study at all just want them to spend you money.

  • Yes it should

    For the record I am not in favor of public schools doing this. I am more in favor of private schools doing this if they want to. Then students can take in to account this an decide to go there or not. It would be widely beneficial to motivate students to study to avoid negative impressions of themselves. Higher up students can be motivated to stay there, And lower students can be motivated to study harder or get more help.

  • Competition is a thing and people aren’t alike.

    Mostly in support for later years, But our society is and should be competitive. Pretending it isn’t helps no one. Not the ones in front nor the ones in the back. Clumping people as if they are all the same isn’t the answer. It’s just a way to pretend that they all start with the same potential. They don’t.

  • No no no

    Humiliating someone isn't going to help them focus or to succeed In trying to do better. Posting someone's grade on the bulletin will just make them feel pressurized and worse on what their grades are. In order to prove a point to someone or push them to do better doesn't mean to point out their weakness as a joke. Instead their weakness should be acknowledge within themselves in understanding the effects if they do better. Now someone walking pass the hall and seeing their grades way lower then the rest ..OK? What difference is that going to make . Obviously the person knew they was going to do bad due to knowing the circumstances of their actions. You will just show them what they already know. You aren't helping them notice anything but to keep doing what they are doing .. As a college student or even a student in HS no one knows the stage of someone personal life. Posting there grades will just be humiliation and no type of motivation. I will honestly be like OK. And keep it moving . That's great that someone else got a higher grade than me what that has to do with me? . Tomorrow the person will come to school or go home with the same mentality they left their house with. Everyone is different in other words everyone learn differently .& just because she got a better grade them me doesn't mean I will wake up tomorow at 5 to me on time for class at 7. There's other ways someone can make someone acknowledge their weakness. Causing Humiliation just pushes them more to do what they please on doing on a regular then trying something new. Or even worst the person can begin feeling so down to the point of giving up. In order to make a change you need to understand what is going on. Some people don't notice their problem until someone tells them. And in this case someone isn't conversing to them about it just putting them in the hot seat. I disagree with this way and its a waste of time to point out someone's lows thinking it will make a god damn difference.If someone post it up your grade will that help you succeed in anyway? You walk to the bulletin board and see that 'Diana got a 90 while you got a 75 will that push yourself to try your hardest for your own good or just to be better then Diana?. What's the point if you still going to be following up what you do best because that is what your use to. You going to see a higher grade next time that you didn't even do to help yourself permanently in regards you did it just for the moment . Humiliate yourself and tell me what type of difference did it just made? ;)

  • You shouldnt post it

    Posting someones score, If a student appears on the lowest tier of the ranks then the student will feel humiliated and just give up, Not all of the students are strong willed and some are weak hearted. Some students will feel pressured and depressed because of the pressure to be on the top in order not to be humiliated again.

  • No wayy don't

    No way ill die never post it i never excpeted my mom to post my 90/100 marks i got pissed because she did it never talked to her i hate it its not good for students just imagine you r driving with rules and soem, One very fast and speedy and a nice car pass by u that like atleast how they feel

  • Pushed into stress

    I would definitely say no. Because Every students mentality is not same. Out of 100 only 20 will accept it and take it as a challenge. While others feel really very bad on seeing their marks published and is pushed into stress. This stress will lead to more pain and less concentration in studies and even can result in suicide. Thus I strongly oppose it

  • No no no

  • Students would be pushed into stress

    I strongly stand against the concept of posting grades on public platforms which are visible and accessible to all. Not all students excel at academics. There are many other areas in which they might be more successful. Putting a student's grade in public view goes against their privacy.
    People might argue that posting grades in public view might motivate students to perform better as they will get an idea of the competition. However, There are a lot of factors that are ignored. A lot of students, Mostly high school students deal with a lot of stress. The mental health of a student is blatantly ignored in most cases. A student who consistently sees his/her bad grades on a public platform might get pushed into depression. This could further lead to disastrous steps. People argue that we must stop protecting the children of this generation. However, The world we live in today faces competition that we've never seen before. Our parents were never forced to score above 90%. Their choice of good colleges weren't bound by the 90% rule. Studies prove that the stress levels of a high school student in the 21st century matches those of patients in mental asylums in the 20th century. We cannot ignore that students come from a variety of backgrounds. Not all of them have access to resources that would allow them to perform better. The risk of public embarrassment and bullying often results in alienation leading to higher levels of anxiety and stress. People with extremely high or low grades might face bullying for might resort to bullying others.
    Grades in a single test do not check a student's brilliance. Some student prefer to keep their grades private no matter what. Publicly posting grades does not lead to healthy competition in any form. Thus, I stand against the motion.

  • Correct Concept, Wrong Method

    I believe that competition would motivate students to do better in grades, But not posting the students' grades. A better idea would be to post student rankings (e. G. #1, #2, Etc. ) instead of grades (e. G. 98%, 67%). It would also be best to post separate achievements such as best average, And most improved on a regular basis.
