As a form of evaluation, assessment or examination is absolutely necessary. Only, there are benchmarks and standards really need to be prepared to give the test to the child.
"Did the students are able to analyze any material provided by the teacher?"
- Amir Antarina SF / Managing Director of SHI
As stated in the material presented seminars Managing Director of School of High / Scope Indonesia (SHI) Antarina SF Amir at the Open House SHI: "Changing, So Why Choose a School That Has not Changed?" in SHI TB Simatupang, Saturday (23/1/2010).
"After what then tested, then tested if the child was not able to do?" she said.
Educates children come to school not to be tested and tested only in the form of values or numbers like this happens on the national exam (UN). Students, she said, is the subject of education that it should find learning goals (learning goals) true for all who have studied and received at the school.
For that, the test for students is not enough to just hold on to one side, namely their academic ability is only proven by the numbers. Antarina say, that the obligation of educators to give tests to their students should be based on two things, namely the ability of analysis and soft skills.
"What students are able to analyze every material given by the teacher and whether he can return based on the ability to tell his analysis of the material to others, whether it was his friend and teacher, that is what should be tested," said Antarina.
He added, in a way that is evaluating the ability of the students more accountable, both to the school, parents, and students themselves. Students do not need to lie to himself by cheating on the values of decent reach. Educators can understand the extent to which students absorb the material.
"Parents did not have to worry their children's ability, let alone to have to give mental distress until the child shall be deemed outstanding," she said. (kompas)
