Grades encourage students to work harder at school
Many teachers believe that rewarding a student with good grades promotes him/her to relax and stop doing anything. But I think it motivates children a lot to work harder. I feel this way for two reasons, which I will explore in the following essay. To begin with, when people doing a job, they want to get some kind of reward, some kind of evaluation of the result. When a person gets good grades, he/she is satisfied and wants to do their job even better. I have a good example from my life. I always do my best to get the nicest scores. But unfortunately, when my hard work is not appreciated properly, I get very upset and disappointed. We have a very strict teacher, in an unimportant subject, and somehow she asked me to complete the assignment. I wrote an amazing essay and spent hours preparing for it as possible as I can. In the end, it was poorly appreciated. Secondly, assessments create competition between students, which helps to improve their results and increase the level of knowledge. Healthy competition inspires kids to do their best – not just good enough. When pupils compete they will become more inquisitive, research independently, and learn to work with others. They will strive to do more than is required. These abilities prepare children for future situations of all kinds. For example, in my class, there are 4 hard-working students, which always take an example from each other. It certainly helps us to be stronger and motivates us to broaden our outlook. In conclusion, I want to say that it is not difficult to get the finding that grades encourage students to learn. Grades give students a big opportunity to improve themselves and make them compete with each other so that they must study and work hard to succeed.
