Düsseldorf (dpa / lnw) – The representation of schoolchildren (LSV) in North Rhine-Westphalia has called for a corona-related right to vote when grading the final exams. The students would have to be able to choose whether the test results are to be evaluated or the average grades are awarded from the previous achievements, demanded the LSV on Sunday. In addition, the assessment bases of the exams would have to be adapted to the learning gaps. In the past few days, there had been strong criticism of the math tasks in the Abitur.
“Using the example of the Abitur, we can now see what was clear before: after more than a year of pandemic, isolation and long school closings, many students were sitting in final exams facing tasks that they could not manage,” criticized Timon Nikolaou, member of the board of directors LSV NRW. The time was too short and the tasks were too demanding.
