Page 219: This Country, Education, and Distrust

/ Tuesday, April 9, 2013 /
Yesterday I heard news on the radio that government is considering the idea to design 20 different types of questions for each student in a class for a national test, to prevent students from cheating during the test.

Questions:
Does that sound a bit pathetic?
Do they have to be that suspicious with the students?
Are we on that verge of distrust in education system in this country, of how we have educated students to be honest and confident enough to rely on their own abilities to answer questions?

No, I’m not saying that I have always been an honor student during school that never cheated. I did. Not often, but I did. And I didn't proud of it.

I just think that 20 different types are too much and not-a-healthy-instant solution.

I actually prefer different types of questions. But completely different ones, each suited for different types of students. Like, a test on history and cultures, and writing/reding/editing/story telling tests for me, and painting/design tests for others, and so on and so forth.
So you know, people will stop judging "you're not booksmart, therefor you're stupid"
