Do Grades Stimulate Students to Learn
For years, when people talk about education in China, students are often criticized for studying only for grades. But some other people hold the opinion that grades encourage students to learn.
In my opinion, grades do encourage students to learn. My reasons are as follows.First of all, we have to make it clear that the idea that grades encourage students to learn isn’t identical to the one that students study for grades. The truth is whatever students are learning and whether they are really learning it well, they will undoubtedly achieve high grades. So grades are not what students are studying for, but a measurement for parents and teachers to know students’ performance in their academic study. Secondly, grades stimulate students to learn because they will study hard to achieve high grades. Afterwards, no matter what grades they have got, they know that they have done well or worked hard enough in their studies. If they are not satisfied, they will study even harder and try to do much better in the future.Lastly, some people may say grades give students too much pressure. I would say that it’s not grades but what they are learning and whether they are learning it well or not that give them the pressure. As I said previously, if they are devoted to what they are learning, it is very likely that they will achieve high grades.
In conclusion, grades can stimulate students to learn. High grades make students obtain a sense of fulfillment while low grades give them encouragement and stimulus.Grades help students know their advantages and disadvantages in their academic studies, which is very helpful for their future academic development.
