Discussion on Organizing TeachersFinal Examination in Chongqing No.1 School

In the dark of the night, four travelers arrived at a narrow, barrierless bridge. We dare not cross the bridge in any case without the help of a flashlight. Unfortunately, all four of them had only one flashlight, and the bridge was narrow enough for two people to cross at the same time. If they cross the bridge individually, the time they need is 1, 2, 4 and 8 minutes respectively; if they cross the bridge at the same time, the time they need is the time they need when the slower person moves alone. What is the minimum time for all four of them to cross the bridge? This brainstorming math problem appeared in the final exam of Nankairong Overseas Chinese Middle School in Chongqing, but it was not the students who scratched their heads in the face of the problem, but all the math teachers in the school.

Director Yang Fei of the Educational Department of Chongqing No. 1 Middle School told Beiqing Daily that at the time of the final examination week, 197 teachers from all disciplines of junior high school and senior high school in Chongqing were organized to take the final examination exclusively by teachers. Yang Fei said that this was the first time that the school held a final examination for teachers. Teachers in junior high schools and senior high schools, taking the teaching and research group as the unit, took the same set of questions and carried out the closed-book and written examinations in a unified way.

Beijing Youth Daily reporter in the exam site photos see that the teachers participated in the exam sit at separate tables in the examination room, each teacher has a space around, the photos can also see invigilator teachers. In the course of the exam, the school also opened electronic monitoring. Teachers in the exam room are not allowed to use mobile phones, and they are not allowed to talk to each other. Yang Fei said.

Once the teachersfinal exam was disclosed, it aroused heated discussion among netizens. Many netizens ridiculed that the situation of teachers being tested made people physically and mentally happy, while some netizens questioned whether it was too tossing the teacher.

Examinations do not publish results in order to test professional background.

Yang Fei told the Beijing Youth Daily that the final exam for teachers was part of the trilogy of teacher training planned by the schools science and education department. Our teacher training mainly consists of three parts: lectures in teaching theory, contests in teaching practice, and examinations in professional background.

It is understood that this examination has not yet been carried out in addition to the physical education examination, other subjects of the examination have been completed one after another. We spent nearly a month arranging teachersweekly teaching and research time for exams, 90-100 minutes for each exam. The author is our colleagues in other campuses. The Chinese test is the most difficult one in all disciplines, and the highest score is only 80 points. Yang Fei said that in addition to cultural lessons, the art exam is to give a few pictures for teachers to sketch on the spot, while the calligraphy teacher is to complete the calligraphy work Qinyuan Chun Xue.

According to Yang Fei, this teacher-only examination is a percentage system, which is uniformly corrected by the UNESCO, but the final results will not be published. We designed a third-class certificate, according to the ratio of 1:1:1, according to the ranking, to get the first prize is a good test, the third prize is a need to work hard, some teachers want to know the specific results, will also come to our department to inquire.

Teachers plan to take exams once a semester.

Yang Fei is not only one of the planners of this exam, but also one of the authors of the math paper. At that time, the authors of other campuses handed me the math papers. I was also a math teacher, so I added some interesting math questions. At the beginning of the article, the mathematical problem of brainstorming is Yang Feis work.

Yang Fei feels a little aggrieved in response to the query of the online tossing teacher. When we designed the exam, we asked the teachers for their opinions. Some teachers were too old to keep up with their eyesight and energy. We were worried that they had conflicting mentality. Therefore, both female teachers over 40 and male teachers over 45 had weights on the exam, and there were no rewards and punishments for our exam, so everyone could not resist the exam.

Yang Fei said that this was the first time that the school tried to give teachers an exam. The school participated in the exam from grass-roots teachers to middle-level cadres. At present, the school plans to organize such an exam every semester so that teachers and students can have the same final exam. Many people questioned my troublesome teacher. Next time Im going to ask the math teacher to give me a question by himself. Ill take the exam too.
