Examinations are one way that you find out how much a student has actually learned. Teachers use them because it is easier to give one examination to many students than it is to sit down with every single student and quiz them face-to-face.

Answer:

Well schools should have exams because it lets you know if you are ready or not for the real world. For example our school makes us take an exam so we can get our high school diploma. And the exams let you know what you need help on in school.

Answer:

Schools must have exams to see if students have understood the course material. Until humans are equipped with USB ports that let our heads be connected to electronic monitors, exams remain the only way to determine the level of knowledge that a student has on a subject.

If every student could simply say that he was up on a topic, and that was the only confirmation required, there would no way to judge his ability. Imagine going to a heart surgeon that just felt he knew what he was doing from reading a book called "Heart Surgery for Dummys"

Problems that students have are:

* Exam anxiety - fear stops them from doing good work * Poorly written exams * Poorly developed exam writing skills * Underlying reading and writing problems * Poor co-ordination between material taught and standard exams

This is not to say that the present methods of giving students exams is good or acceptable. The types of exams and their problems are:

* Skill observation, as used in CPR curses and similar. The student must perform under observation of an instructor until performance meets agreed upon standards. Creates high levels of anxiety.

* Multiple choice exams. The student must chose the right answer from a limited set of almost right answers. A potential for patterns of answers or cheats is possible. * Exams graded electronically. Answers must match exactly when the question may be ambiguous * Exams graded by assistants. Alternate exam ansers may be equally correct as the professors desired response but presented differently but the TAs inexperience does not identify this.

* Regurgitation exams. Students are taught to repeat provided answers word for word until the recitation is perfect. No understanding is required. * Long term observation. A student claiming to have skills is observed for a long period of time to determine is the skill is evident. A time consuming and instructor intensive method. * Demonstration of learned skills. Problems in maths, science or understanding are posed and the student develops an answer. The student using a unique solution may be penalized. Markers must rate technique as well as answers for marks.
