TOEFL Essay Topic 72 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Grades (marks) encourage students to learn. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
In one way or another all of the people have experiences with grades in school. Perhaps the most of them got stressed and scared because of it. Altough I attended dozens of exams and took dozens of grades, I absolutely find the idea which says grades encourage students to learn wrong because grading makes a negative pressure on students and take the will of learning away from the kids.
To begin with, pushing students to a grading system does not cause encouragement but excessive pressure on them. When teachers force students to attend many examinations while they are learning new stuff for the first time in their life, they only make them more stressful. When a student is not peaceful enough, he cannot get what teachers want him to teach because they are not robots as well, they are human. Thus giving grades to kids only harms their encouragement, doesn’t encourage them.
Another disadvantage of grading is that it takes all the joy of learning from the students. One who works only for exams not for learning, gets bored of it after a while because giving some grade marks to people is not different than programming them as a computer. If you don’t give them the freedom of learning and push them into a strict rule-system, you loose them. Therefore grading system must be ended.
To sum up, I refuse the idea which says grades encourage students to learn, it exactly makes students stresful and reluctant so that they cannot concentrate on learning.
