Grade Issue Task Essay Exchange


Recommended Posts


I am willing to grade other people's essays if someone could grade mine (or just simple feedback) using the ETS Grading Rubric. Please respond with feedback for my essay and your essay if interested. 

Thank you! 

Educational institutions have a responsibility to dissuade students from pursuing fields of study in which they are unlikely to succeed.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your position, be sure to address the most compelling reasons and/or examples that could be used to challenge your position.

Educational institutions uphold the responsibility of manifesting student success. However, dissuading students from pursuing fields of study in which they are unlikely to succeed does not guarantee success in other fields. Certain fields of study require a long-term pursuit of work ethic and perseverance before success if manifested, particularly the arts. Celebrity actor Morgan Freeman did not have his big break until he was significantly older than the status quo youthful age of obtaining fame.

There are limited predictive measurements that can determine a students’ success. While grades may provide a narrow glimpse of student strengths and weaknesses, successful high school drop-outs including Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, and Bill Gates, CEO of Microsoft, have disproven traditional education as a preemptive necessity for success. Students also may not experience failure, moments of which are commonly found in the narrative of successful people.

Research on social-emotional learning has increasingly found soft skills including grit and perseverance increase the likelihood of high school graduation by 37%. Educational institutions may consider manifesting such skills rather than focusing on specific fields.

However, dissuading students from pursuing fields of study could potentially increase the likelihood of identifying skills and talents worth tapping into given the evaluation and development of psychological, emotional, and intelligence testing, leading the way for a successful career.

Schools, universities, and other learning centers are responsible for manifesting student success using methods that predict achievements of which remain unclear.
