When a student cheats, they disenfranchise and rob their fellow students of merit, while those students whom work to achieve the scores cannot actively control their future outcome like a cheater
Darwinism. Survival of the fittest. Adapt to survive. The mark of true intellect is knowing how to apply it and when it is needed. Efficiency is key.
Students and teachers alike argue that standardized testing, and related procedures, take meaningful time and energy out of students. Students also see that those tests mean nothing, and they slave away at them in the name of administration merit and increased funding for more standardization
Students should still strive to gain more funding for their schools if they want more benefits and programs
How these funds are spent in response to standardized testing must be examined. If the students do poorly compared to previous scores, the administration should spend more on educational resources and better faculty
If a student in college is forced to take a GED course that is completely redundant to their future, and they may fail (affecting their GPA and future opportunities) it is right for a student to cut those corners and ignore learning in favor of passing.
Such General Education is necessary to broaden horizons.
There is no reason for a student to spend money on a GED course, then fail it, when it should not affect their credibility i their field whatsoever. Yet GEDs cripple many students. The result in disinterest and an attitude of "I just need to get the credit" and GEDs are unfairly used to improve GPA
If a student is receiving poor grades in a Major course, they take a small GED to boost the grade, even if it has nothing to do with merit in their future career.
Students may find they are interested and excel at new and different concepts than they originally thought
We must abide by the "Honor Code" - stating that cheating is morally wrong.
Cheating happens because students feel its more important to PASS than to LEARN.
Weeks out of every year are dedicated to the study of TEST TAKING, or how to take certain standardized tests, so that teachers and administrators receive merit for high scores which are arbitrary and do not boost student growth, but inhibit that growth. Standardized testing harms students.
If the tests are for the merit of admins and teachers, then why is the honor code enforced on students? we spend so much time learning how to test that we lose valuable time learning actual material. Therefore, Admins disgrace their own principles through self-interest.
We wouldn't need the honor code if classes were taught properly by engaging students, and teaching them meaningful principles and lessons.
If students were thoughtfully engaged in the right material, and catered to properly, they wouldn't need to cheat.
It disenfranchises fellow pupils who chose to abide by Honor Codes.
Wouldn't the more intelligent student be the one whom finds the most efficient path to success?
The Honor Code is all that is left to preserve equal treatment and prevent unfair discrimination of students.
