Harmful and Unnecessary: The Case for Abolishing Exams
Hannah, John
About Campus, v24 n2 p12-17 May-Jun 2019
The following question guides this paper: What features of the postsecondary experience unnecessarily contribute to diminished student well-being? As part of this project of testing bold ideas about student well-being, two things should rightly be the focus of attention: (1) the broader context, the zeitgeist in which students find themselves today that forms the backdrop of their experience, and (2) the specific features of the postsecondary experience that actually contribute unnecessarily to diminished student well-being. Here the author will make a case for the abolishment of exams for all first-year students.
