Do you think EXAMS are necessary???

Assessments are necessary. yes, exams are tiring but are good indication of learning, of knowledge transfers, and skills building. As we progress to a more competitive world, our education has to be more effective in what they are doing - teach. and the only tangible measurement of effectiveness is assessment. It feeds the teachers information on how well the class or the student was able to understand the topic and set necessary action plans for everyone to be on the same page. Learning is hard but enjoyable work. But you will reap the fruits of your work after school when you get to have a good job. Ace those exams!

I have to agree, with the first poster. If you dont take an exam, how does the teacher establish if you have learned anything? I homeschool my son. He will be going into 3rd grade. I test him every Friday, to see that he has learned new material for that week, and also to make sure he has retained previously learnt information. Yes tesing is very boring, but very necessary.
