Rodriguez 1Anthony RodriguezProfessor HonamanENC 11027 October 2017Teaching for a TestFor decades, every student has been taking a test that is “supposed to” differentiate students fromthe good and the bad. In every school, tests are being thrown at students from every direction totry to prove how a student reads and answers a question, and regardless if they are taught thematerial or not, if they do not get a certain score then all the hard work spent in that class andyear will go down the drain, just because there was a possibility that a teacher runs right over aconcept due to teaching solely for a test. One of the biggest questions floating around theeducation system is “should an end-of-the-year tests determine whether a student passes or failsthe class?” At the end of the year of a course, there should not be a test that determines whethersomeone passes or fails because some kids are smart but are not good at tests, teachers rush theirwhole curriculum and students don’t retain the material as well, as it scares kids away fromgoing to school in the future for their dream job.No two students are the same and there are many influences towards that like the type of school,state or region they live in, and even the specific subject they are trying to comprehend. Thereare many kids who are intelligent but just need a little more description or even more assistancetowards the material. Kids who work hard all year balancing everything in their life to study andturn in assignments deserve to be rewarded for the work they put into the classroom, not fordoing well on one test.
