  As usual, the performance of their children in the final exams has dominated the emotions of their parents ahead of Spring Festival. The family atmosphere, parent-child relationship, consumption and even the kids’ food are all closely related to their scores.

  通常来说,孩子们的期末考试成绩决定着春节前家长的心情。家庭氛围、父母与子女间的关系、消费、甚至是孩子们吃的食物都跟他们的分数息息相关。

致家长:考试的真正意义不在于分数(双语)

  But do parents really see the value of exam scores and the role of exams?

  但是家长们真的明白了考试分数的价值以及考试的意义了吗?

  First, exam results reveal a child’s academic progress.

  首先,考试结果能反应孩子的学习过程。

  For primary and secondary school students, interest and confidence in learning are more important than the test results. For children whose test results are less glamorous, the examination has proved their defeat. But no matter if their children achieve good scores or not, their parents should cherish their children’s hard work and study efforts.

  对于中小学学生来说,学习过程中的兴趣和自信比考试结果更加重要。对于那些考试成绩没那么理想的孩子来说,这场考试就意味着他们的失败。但无论他们的孩子有没有取得好成绩,父母们都应该珍惜孩子们在学习过程中所做的努力。

  In fact, children need their parents’ love. Parents shouldn’t make any derogatory remarks, or show an angry or disappointed face to their children. Instead, they should focus on any progress their child has made. Maybe in a certain subject the result is better than before, or the study attitude has improved a lot?

  事实上,孩子们也需要父母的关爱。家长们不应该说一些贬低孩子的话,或者不给他们好脸色。相反地,他们更应该关注孩子们的进步。比如在某一门学科上这次考得比上一次好,或者是学习态度有所长进。

  In short, parents should focus on the best aspects of their child’s performance, pulling children out from under the pressure of the exams and giving them confidence in learning.

  总而言之,父母应该关注孩子们最好的表现,不要给他们施加考试压力,在学习上给他们建立自信。

  Second, parents need to bear in mind that exams are a way to find the weaknesses in a child’s learning process.

  其次,家长们应该意识到,考试只是一种发现孩子学习过程中缺点的方式。

  There is a variety of test classifications; in general, they can be divided into targeted and selective examinations. Selective examinations refer to examinations, such as the college entrance examination, used to identify talent. The middle and final examinations in primary and secondary school years are to check whether the knowledge and skills acquired by students after one semester of study have been obtained according to the requirements of the syllabus and whether they have reached the established teaching objectives.

  考试有很多种。总体上可分为有针对性的考试和可选择性的考试。可选择性的考试主要指类似高考的考试,用于测试学生的才能。中小学的中期和期末考试主要用于检验学生的学习成果,根据考试大纲的要求看看学生们经过一学期学习,要求掌握的知识和技能是否习得,教学目标有没有实现。

  These are phased academic examinations which are targeted tests. Of course, in order to encourage students to learn, schools offer some incentives based on the results of these examinations as the basis for selection, such as awards to the students who gain the highest scores.

  阶段性学业考试就属于有针对性的考试,当然,为了鼓励学生学习,经过选择,学校也会根据考试成绩建立一些奖惩机制,比如给成绩第一的学生颁奖。

  The targeted examinations present a child’s learning outcome at a certain stage. Therefore, related to the results, the problems found in these tests should be valued by parents. Through these exams, a child’s learning weaknesses, which may affect their future studies, can be identified.

  针对性的考试代表着孩子在一定阶段的学习成果,因此与结果有关,在测试中发现发现的问题才应该被家长重视。通过这些考试,能轻易发现孩子身上影响以后学习生活的缺陷。

  Learning is a continuous process. The previous stage of learning will influence the next stage. Therefore, if the parents only focus on their children’s lowest scores, and only feel sad or disappointed and vent their emotions by making life difficult for their children, targeted examinations lose their true purpose.

  学习是一个持续性的过程,学习的前一个阶段会对下一个阶段有影响。因此,如果父母只关注孩子的最低分,并为此感到伤心或者失望,从而向孩子们发泄生活的不易,针对性的考试就失去了真正的意义。

  Third, identify a child’s strengths and fully develop them.

  第三,发现孩子的强项并且助其发展。

  Parents should talk with their children as well about their study experiences: why they like one course more than another, what learning methods they prefer, which subjects their children are interested in.

  父母应该和孩子们交流一下他们的学习经历,比如问一下他们为什么喜欢这一科多一点,更喜欢哪种学习方式,对哪一门更感兴趣。

  It is unnecessary to force children to develop any skills they are not interested in at all. If there is genuine talent and interest in a particular area, parents should try and help their children tap and develop their potential.

  没必要强迫孩子学习他们一点也不感兴趣的东西。如果孩子在某方面有过人的才智和兴趣,父母就应该试着帮助孩子挖掘和发展这项才能。

  Parents’ perception of children’s exam scores reflects their understanding of different stages of development, thus the exams are also exams for parents now

  父母对孩子考试成绩的看法反应了他们对孩子不同发展阶段的理解,因此,孩子们的考试同时也是对父母的考试。
