Unge Høyre argues that left-wing politics do not prepare students for higher education, let alone learning.

Assessing students more frequently is not the solution.

I think we need more of the opposite.

Currently, many students are in their first exam period at university.

There is a narrative that those who want to make school policy want students to learn less. That is not true. Above all, we want to ensure that the forms of learning and assessment we use in school, Real works.

For example, there is no research that suggests that students learn more because they have higher grades. At the same time, it continues to be an argument for improving students’ reading, writing and arithmetic skills from the right side.

Having lots of tests does not equal learning.

What do you think is most helpful in learning?

The same goes for homework—studies bear it out Little connection between homework and learningEspecially in elementary school.

Additionally, we know that homework only helps students Highly educated parentsAnd school classes that receive homework have greater differences in student performance than classes that do not.

At the same time, wanting to get rid of homework or rethinking how we use homework in school is still intense in Norwegian political discourse today.

The Right likes to equate secondary school with higher education. But higher education is very different.

A physics major, a political science major, and a concert major have very different daily study lives, and they often have a completely different assessment.

For example, last year I went for about 15 exams IB IBIB (International Baccalaureate) is an international school sequence in over 100 countries, and you can study it in Norway too.A Political Science course should include portfolio submissions and take-home exams.

Unge Høyre gives the impression that there is only a written school exam for all courses – but that is not true.

Higher education is characterized by responsibility for one’s own learning rather than secondary education.

Therefore, many people are demanding the transition to student life – they are used to strict behavior and strict requirements, but are now fully responsible for their own learning.

Many study programs offer some mandatory activities and some assessments during the semester.

If you miss a lecture or an exam, no one is going to call your parents home.

Comparisons with student life are common.

The right seems completely locked into doing what we’ve always done with school policy. In Oslo, the new city council has stopped a number of pilot projects in the Oslo school, which would have given us more insight into what works.

It includes new ways of assessing discipline and behaviour, and attempts to allow students to choose which subjects they sit for at secondary school.

They are also leading efforts to provide students with long-term work as an alternative to exams by securing a written school test, regardless of the exam result.

Conservatives seem to be allergic to too much knowledge about school policy.

I encourage Unge Hoyer to dare to rethink school policy and not just stick with the same old solutions.

Just because we’ve always done it one way doesn’t mean it’s a good way to do it.
