But nowadays, more and more people are in a quandary whether or not standardize scores as an optimum measurement of knowledge. These are two major reasons that illustrate scoring is not an effective way to measure student performance.To begin with, scores do not present equality among students. For example, those who have a difficulty with a stress environment might struggle when they have a test and the result in skipping multiple questions that they might easily choose the correct answers. Consequently, they get a C instead of deserving an A on the exam. On the other hand, their friends who only draw the answer spontaneously with 25% correct answer probability receive an A because of luck rather than their own ability. Therefore, measurement one's performance by scores is an inaccurate method.Secondly, overly concern about grades also generates negative effects on both young people and their educator. Some students desiring to achieve high scores without focusing during class and studying hard tend to use bad alternative ways such as cheating or copying their next neighbors. Not only affect the student, chasing to grades also harms teacher true mission. A travesty of education is that several instructors measure their student's ability not by the knowledge they master but the amount of money in their parent's pocket. The more bribes they receive, the more scores are increased.While we weigh the drawbacks of scoring in the educational atmosphere, it is safe to say that this method is not the beneficial way to present one's knowledge. Not only reflect the inequality, grades also create many grievous problems for both the trainer and the trainee. In my individual opinion, schools can evaluate student's ability by different projects or assignments.
