This considering the results of the training tests that the students have taken lately, a test that gave the teachers a clearer picture of how the 8th grade students prepared.
For example, in Romanian, part of the subject was taken out, says teacher Cristina Tunegaru. The teacher explained to Ziare.com that students will not have to demonstrate the assimilation of elements of literary or grammatical theory in the exam, but the understanding of a text.
Teacher: “The exam program has been brushed”
They will also need to demonstrate the ability to formulate an argument or support an idea. This is because the subjects from the 2021 National Assessment are somewhat similar to those of the PISA type.
“It was a difficult year because much of the year was spent online. However, the exam syllabus was brushed off with some content, especially grammar. Some elements, much of the class. “For example, only four of all the others that were for the exam in the initial form of the program remained for subordinate sentences”, explained the teacher Cristina Tunegaru for Ziare.com.
The teacher claims that this school year represented an extraordinary situation for the 8th grade students in the context in which the exam program is different from the previous year.
The children do not know what to expect
“One of the most difficult topics requires students to compare a literary text with another text that they have read and to highlight a similarity and a difference, only that they must be formulated convincingly. And then, there are some topics. difficult, which requires a lot of exercise “, says Tunegaru.
“The problem is that these children did not work much on this type of subject. We received the final version of the exam subject only in November. Since then we have only had 15 training tests, they will not be held even though they are extremely important. “Children do not know what to expect”, added Cristina Tunegaru, who claims that the National Evaluation must be supported, in the context in which in Romania there is no objective evaluation system.
Cancellation of exams – a solution?
On the other hand, the mathematics teacher Stefan Vlaston states that a solution would be to cancel the exams and equate them with the averages obtained by students in high school, a proposal that was not approved by the Ministry of Education, although discussions were held last year.
“The children did not travel for three semesters due to the pandemic. One third of them did not have access to the internet at all, another third did not understand much because it is difficult to focus from home in front of the screen. The only ones who have chances are those who they had meditators or those whose parents helped them “, explained professor Stefan Vlaston for Ziare.com.
The lack of objective assessment is also a reason why Vlaston argues that a cancellation of the National Assessment for 2021 would be needed. The professor argues, instead, that the degree of difficulty of the math exam should be at least the same as in the tests. training supported by students in recent weeks.
“If it is easier, it’s not okay,” said the math teacher.
High school admission with averages of 9.98
The remedial classes that the students did, at the disposal of the Ministry of Education, can certainly help the students, shows Marius Nistor, the president of the Federation of Trade Unions in Education.
“When these exams are treated with the utmost seriousness, students can definitely have good results in the current conditions. More than likely this year will reach the situation where they will enter high school with averages of 9.98 “We should not go on the idea of reporting the best possible percentages, but to see what the reality is,” said Marius Nistor.
“Every year these averages vary. If in one year the exam was more difficult, then the entrance average is high. Last school year the subjects were easier in the exam, maybe because of the pandemic. We don’t know what this year will be like, it is possible to be equally accessible to the subjects and to take very high marks and, thus, to reach the situation in which with an average of 10 you cannot enter a certain high school, which is not desirable. -he could make the difference in such a situation “, concluded the Romanian teacher Cristina Tunegaru.
We remind you that the registrations for the National Evaluation 2021 take place between June 7th and 11th, the 8th grade students will take the fire tests in Romanian, mathematics and mother tongue between June 22nd and 25th.
