What Influences Student Perceptions?
With the advent of time, the course material for students in schools and colleges has been increased. Education has become endless. There is no limit to the age and course material if a person wanted to study and get an education.
But the people who have to complete their degree course due to some pressure and responsibility have to face trouble in their entire life. It has become very difficult for them to survive in the competitive world, which is further creating negative impacts on the life of people.
There are different perspectives of people for the overloaded coursework or material for the students. It includes both hard and easy courses, rigor and standards, efforts and accomplishments. There are cases when the amount of work or course material influences a student to chose their subjects and careers and they decide their goals accordingly which less interest them.
According to some students, this is the core responsibility of the teacher. But when a student completes their primary years, they should know their destinations. A teacher can only guide, but a student needed to take the step to reach their destinations. There are different perspectives based on different situations of a student.
- Workload management – The concept of workload refers to the study of learning programmes that needed to be completed with a defined period of time, determined by the educational authority. A research has been conducted which says that the average study period of a student should be 32/34 weeks.
- Dropout students – For the dropout students, there are factors that are influenced by study time. In a research, it has been found that almost 20% of students fall behind their coursework.
- Full course – For successful students also, workload is the main issue. Out of the course, around one-third of the students get success due to the course materials. It also includes the completion of continuous assessment and examination of the course. This is just an average. Some of the courses present more workload pressures than others with students more likely to fall behind as a result.
Content is directly related to workload. Sometimes it’s the amount of content and the array of different topics covered in the course. In a study, relationships between teachers and students were also related to perceptions of workload.
