[quote=“Trankalinos”]My buddies were saying that some of the typical 97%-average students that are getting 96% in the class were getting low 80’s or high 70’s on the exam. The ones that scored high were the students that were getting between 60-80%.
@Princess of Power: Yes, you are correct. I guess in a way, the Asians probably shined above everyone else because something just clicked on the day of the exam. They did tell me that the final 9 days of the semester consisted of 7 Essays to be written: 3 in-class, 3 drafts, 1 Major Essay. I guess the slave-driving got them to get used to what the Exam was looking for.
English was a hard course for me, I never did well in-class because much of the course content reflects if the teacher thinks it’s good or not.
Sorry to everyone that got confused by my message. I just wanted to see possible explanations as to why the students scored the way they did. I’ll try to get more information on the matter.[/quote]
Okay, First off, no one was getting over 90 Percent in any of the first term English classes at PRSS.
Two, everyone had a chance at English. Those so-called “97% kids” all did poorly at English and even kids who are “60% kids” could do well in English 12.
In my class only four kids got over 86 percent in English 12 and out of those 4 kids, 2 got less than 86 on their provincial and one was Asian. The other got an A and he is Asian. The other got an A and she is not Asian.
Lastly, all the essays in class were marked by one teacher and were evaluated through many many essays, questions and tests. The provincial is marked by several different teachers and is based off three essays + multiple choice. Obviously the class marks are a more better evaluation of a student’s English marks. ( AND from what I know, our English 12 teacher is not biasd at all)
So don’t make some baseless claims about, or suggesting that somehow race has something with English provincial marks.[/quote]
Uh oh. Messed up!
