I would tell him that we need to reduce the amount of test because, the buble test are makeing all these kids stressed and not doing as well on the test that they should be makeing hundreds on. The reason why I would tell him that is because it’s the truth to many kids are getting stressed over these tests and not doing as well on the other ones they take.
I would say that it was kind of easy because some of the problems I already knew how to do. And our teacher has reviewed a lot with us to prepare us. And I tried my best on it so I think I did good on the test. And I have studied a lot for it to.
My advice is to not make any test harder. If the student don’t know the answer it’s their fault. They should have paid attention in class more. I thibk kids in the US are smart enough to answer these questions. Like the teacher say’s, ” Take your time. Don’t rush throught the test.” I mean come on if the students get what they wnat that’s not called learning. Expecially when the teachers let them. That proves some teachers don’t have back bone!!! I think that teachers shouldn’t do this. All these test should be the same and the student’s can deal with it.
I would tell him that bubble test are very stressful to kids that are around my age. I would tell him just to watch a class with a bubble-in- quiz, that that the teacher of that class gives the children, and see how stressful a bubble-in-test is. The ARMT and SAT10 are very stressful on kids 3rd grade through 8th grade students. That is what I will tell Arne Duncun if he asked my advice.
I would tell him the tips that are in the magazine. If they work, then I would tell him. I would also make up some of my own. Like to tap your head to try and remember something. I don’t think that one works, but I guess he could try.
i would tell him not to let us take any more test but the olsat and if we did not have to take the olsat we would not have to take any test again in the world but if he did not agree on that i would tell him not to make the test scores to high but if that did not work i would tell him not to make any more test in the united states of america.
I would tell him just to do his best, and don’t rush take your time. I would also tell him to go back and check his answers. Also to get a goodnight sleep that you are well rested. One more thing I might say is to try to get all the problems done and if he takes his time it is better to have a few answer choises unmarked then to just guess at the answer. The reason I would say that is because, that is what always helps me when I have a test. Also that every teacher I have met has told me the same thing.
I would say that the tests should have a little more open ended and more than just bubble-in answers. Because that kids should be able to show their work and if they got it wrong they could see where thry got it wrong. Also they should not try to make it easier because that is not a true score if you dumb it up than thats not makeing the kids use the skills that they have learned.
I would tell him that I took the test once before and I’m not scared no more then when I first took the test. When I first took the test I was scared as could be. The first time would not be the first time I was going to take the test. The test was hard, it was hard from the beginning of the test to the end.
I would probably tell him not to stress so much over the test because the test will be a little more clearer to the kids if they are relaxed. There should also be a lot more than just “bubble-in the dots.” The kids should really be able to show you how they work the problems. All you have to do is Believe in yourself!!!! Think of it as if you were just doing a long “quiz” or “worksheet” and like I said BELIEVE!
I would tell him that we should take less test but not get rid of them completely. I would tell him that there should be more bubble in problems and less open ended problems. They should be able to have things to help them get relaxed for the tests. They should get rid of the ARMT but keep the OLSAT.
If he asked me a question like “What do you think was the most difficult part of the test?”, I would say something like “There was no easy or hard part, the entire test gave me jitters.” Another question he might ask would be ” Do you think the test should be easier?”, I would say “No, I believe the test should stay the same, it will always be ‘hard’ for us, but if we ‘dummy down’ the test, we won`t learn as much from the experience.” After that he might say ” So you want the test to stay as hard as it is?”, I would say “It isn`t the test that is hard, it`s the feeling of how many answers you have to have in your head. Kids think it is hard because they see an empty bubble sheet or a word document you have to fill in, they get so excited and then when it is time, BOOM! They think the test is hard. It is just their minds.”
