I don't know if this is true or not, but I have a bro who is Japanese, and HE TOLD ME that Japanese girls act dumb when they like a guy because it makes them look "cuter" and less "bitchy". I have seen this first hand, as when ever we are hanging out with other Japanese peeps, girls will come up us and ask us shit that you'd think be super obvious. Shit like "How do I spell ___" and shit like that.

So I would assume the anime is trying to cater to Japanese men by making the females in the show dumb. I can't confirm this though.

But that's just not true. It depends on the format of the test, I could have a test with questions like

"Why did the american colonies declare independance from England, pick from a,b,c,d"

or questions like
"discuss the motives and sociopolitical reasons for the declaration of independance".

Someone who scores a 50 on the second test probably knows more than someone who scored 75 on the first. It's not about sheer memorization, it's also about analysis and understanding. A 50 is a fair passing grade for test 2 while a 75 is a fair passing grade for test one because test 2 asks more from the student. Meeting a high expectation 50% is the equivalent or better than meeting a low expectation 75% and the high expectation allows for greater differentiation between the capable students and the extremely capable students.

Depends on the test. I'd say.
Remembering half of the shit you've been taught usually is not even close to being enough to get 50% of the points in the kind of tests I know.
I'm studying physics and in the first semesters a whole lot of people failed the first tests in maths and theoretical physics, even though they knew most of the stuff.

My point is: 50 points doesn't equal 50% of the required knowledge for 100 points.

School is preparation for these things! Knowing BASIC biology should not be difficult, no one is asking them to monitor and graph some crustacean's phenotypes over ten years of climate adjustment. People should know, on at least a basic level, how the things around them work. It builds an informed society. Don't make the classes difficult before a person can choose their specialization of interest (if they even go for that sort of thing), but don't go balls deep in ignorance and throw around the usual "why should I learn it, I'm never going to use it!" line. It creates an ignorant society, and then you get the USA.

Not in university Physics, there depending on the professor a 50/100 can be a C, which is minimum requirement. Hell, I'm pretty sure I wasn't supposed to even get a C going by test scores and yet the professor gave me a B. He even said I did pretty were when I got a 64% in the first exam. It's really relative to what subject you're studying and whether the professor cares more about you getting answers right or more about you understanding the materials.

The main reason why is that tests anywhere in the world, especially Japan, are harder than in the US. Therefore getting e.g. 50% on an exam in Japan means 80% in the US.

See, schools in the US have to give their students super easy tests so that parents can brag about their kids getting 100% on their exams, otherwise they'd get sued. Meanwhile, in the rest of the world, teachers and professors like challenging their students so they give them harder tests, but don't necessarily expect them to be able to do all of the exercises perfectly.

Hope that helped OP.

>>
>>100787423
>Grading on a curve is stupid
True if you're talking about stuff meant to measure attainment.

On the other hand, if you want to measure ability, you grade on a curve since you know that for a reasonably large group like a decent size school or even better a school district the ability scores will fall on a nice bell curve. It's surprisingly hard to write tests to perfectly line up scoring with actual ability, so provided you haven't really fucked up the difficulty and had everybody fail or everybody ace it, you remap the scores onto a curve so the numbers give a sensible indication of student aptitude on a 1-100 scale that allows for intuitive comparison.

There are exceptions at stuff like university level, where even though you want to measure skill/attainment, it becomes so hard to set tests at that level that you occasionally have to change boundaries based on a curve model fitted to the actual results. The scores are still generally reported in absolute figures though.
>>
>How is 7/10 average?

You're going to school not reviewing a fucking video game. When reviewing you are subjectively rating something on a scale from 1-10 where 1-10 carrry equal weight, as 5 is in the middle, 5 is average.

When dealing with grades, however, this is a percentage. It is not relative, nor subjective. If it is subjective, you're in a shit field of study. Furthermore, if you can't make higher than an 85 on anything, you don't know the material at all.
>>
>>100795058
I wish that were the case in my schools. I HAD to show the work, in full, every time. Literally every single step had to be written on the test papers. The only exception was some bullshit online quiz we did one time, as it had 100 questions and we didn't have enough time to write it all down and shit.
>>100795134
So never solve for the variables? Just combine all the X and Y variables until it's X +/- Y? Surprisingly enough I only ever did that one time, and that one time was only a few days of class.
>>
>>100792573

>>
>>100795226
>if you can't make higher than an 85 on anything, you don't know the material at all.
And this is why subjects where you just need to know the material are laughable. Studying hard to get a good grade is too easy compared to stuff where it actually depends on your skills beyond applying concepts.
>>
>>100795134
In my experience, curve based teachers are always lenient Type-B personalities that will almost always get through less material than teachers who teach objectively and from a schedule without slowing down for any reason.

Learning requires participation and self-motivation, it's the professor's job to teach you the material, and if the professor has to go over something twice because some cocksucker was on facebook, it's to the detriment of students who aren't assholes. This shouldn't even be a topic of discussion at high school level, curves are as retarded as standardized testing and the common core.

Tests where the professor forces you to draw tables, diagrams or other things with a ruler but you end up running out of time because you spent half the time drawing shit are annoying.

Wait is it percentage or actual score? Because if it is actual score, it could be a test from 1 to 60 or something. If it's percentage, getting 50% in a 20 item quiz isn't so bad.

NEETs are obviously below average when it comes to intelligence, but outside of Otaku/NEET audiences high school in japan is a prep for college, which is basically job training there. After high school you can't make grades like that, if you do, well, it should probably be a cram school anime.

Yeah, the problem is that I would forget to write down the sign (or write down the wrong sign) because I was writing too fast or because I was thinking ahead, not because I would get confused during multiplication.

Sometimes I would catch it, sometimes I wouldn't. The probability of forgetting a sign increases as the number of operations increases.

Here in England maths GCSEs (we do our tests across the country like non-retards) will give you full marks for an answer with no workings out. But there is space to do the process, partial marks are available for correct workings even if the final answer is wrong. Gives the best of both worlds

In most UK universities below 40% is considered failing. 70% is the cut off for a "first class" degree.

Though that's mostly because a lot of the exams tend to focus on long form answers and are designed to push even the best students. Multiple choice is pretty much unheard of beyond the age of 16 or is at most an easy intro into a much harder paper. I've sat exams where no one was expected to actually finish.

Don't give students tests with blow-off questions, if you have to fail them you have to fail them.

Consider thinking of creative ways to explain concepts, a lot of students have trouble learning simple concepts like fractions because earlier grades vehemently lie to them and over simplify what division actually is. Don't be afraid to unlearn things. Also, force them to participate in class. Participation grades are fucking brilliant.

I'm not sure about that particular guy's situation, but there are schools where failing too many students can get a teacher in deep shit.

That's not a problem with standardised testing, it's a problem with America doing standardised testing retardedly and not being willing to pay examiners to actually mark tests.

Every year in the UK students are doing A-levels, GCSEs even key stage 3 tests. These are national standardised tests (well mostly, there are 3 exam boards and minor variances between them) any multiple choice is a small part of these exams.

They are delivered en masse to examiners across the country with marking guidelines and how to score these exams. Many of them actually include a handful of marks for spelling, punctuation and grammar regardless of the subject.

You have too little information to make such a judgement.

To >>100787423 and all the other anti curves:
As EE in an elite university, I can tell you that they always curve the grades and modify the averages according to many factors and even individually judge close cases. In the end the percentage of dropout after each semester remain more or less constant (e.g. 50+-5% after 1st year and 15+-5% every semester afterwards).
I already had an exam in my 1st year where you needed 80% for a sufficient grade while the average was still very good but especially some of my more recent exams are so difficult that you already get the best grade when you get 40% of the points because the averages are below 20%.

However such low averages are not
>an educational crisis.
They simply show the difficulty. The more hardship you have to overcome, the stronger you become. In lifting, you progress by constantly going to your absolute limit. In problem solving and mental capacity you progress in the same exact manner. If it is humanly possible to reach 100% in an exam, it is not difficult enough to maximize the training effect on the students. That's the mindset of my uni and why it is ranked among the top 10 in engineering.

I was pretty unpopular in High School because I was friends with a lot of the teaching staff. Off the record they all complained about how awful dealing with parents was, every single parent assumes the problem is the teacher's and believes every piece of bullshit their kids say.

Still though, the departments of the school that were average to above average (math and english) gave real assignments and the science teachers, only one of whom even had a biology degree and believed in Evolution, assigned fucking word searches with vocabulary words every other day. Almost the whole school failed the state science test almost every year. I think there was a mass firing a few years after I graduated.

Math. Mostly things like basic geometry (area, volume) and percentages. The students in question were 15-16 year olds studying for careers in gardening, animal care, and so on. So the questions where "you have a field X by Y meters large. You want a Z centimetre thick layer of gravel all over it. How much gravel do you need?", "You borrow N money at 3% yearly interest. The interest then goes up to 6%. How much extra do you have to pay every month?".

So basically math a twelve year old should manage, and all of it directly related to their chosen future career or the daily life of just about anyone.

Quite a lot of them would have struggled with the multiplication tables. Some didn't know if multiplying with 100 meant adding or removing zeroes.

This looks surprisingly simple for a math test. Those are simple grinding exercises where you need maybe 30 min of studying to ace them.

In my superior Swiss education the STEM exercises were always unique so you don't have to replicate a calculator but actually understand the concept behind everything and how to come up with solutions for problem types you have never seen before.

>>100793724
However, when I was in Tokyo last year, I saw a TV program on an educational channel unlike anything I have ever seen in the western world. They actually showed respectable stuff such as electro static and dynamics, mechanics, thermo and fluiddynamics, general and special relativity, even various QM stuff such as quantum well, cascade, superposition and so on.
Thanks to that educational channel I now know scientific japanese terms but I already forgot basic conversation such as 'I live in x'.

I got higher grades than her on english just by playing games my whole life.

More in depth:

American Seniors in High School generally take a test called the SAT (Formerly Scholastic Achievement Test, re-acronymed to mean nothing a few years ago). As Universities in America exist in a seperate system to normal schooling, with many being private, the test is not given by compulsory schools. Instead, students have to travel to a school that hosts the test (unless the school that has the test is yours).

The test consists of 3 sections, one of which is a written essay.

It's the American equivalent of an Entrance Exam in anime, as almost every college will require you to have a set score on it unless you were in the top of your class.

The SAT is very culturally important in America, where students refer to it as the Suck Ass Test, and it carries a reputation of being the ultimate slacker hail mary to get into a not shit school.

Crazy that it all rides on one test.

Here the standard way in to university (there are a few other routes but they are not common) is A-levels. These are the standardised courses done between 16-18 and most students take 3-5 of them.

When you apply to university you will get a conditional offer based on projected grades which vary depending on the degree you are taking (ie you apply to do degree X at university Y, we don't have the collecting credits and picking a major thing here). These conditionals will almost always be 3 grades and one or two of specific subjects, for example physics at a good university might need ABB with two of the A-levels being in physics and mathematics, a lesser university might require only BBC or might waive the maths requirement if you do a foundation year of maths there before your degree proper.

No I only got fives, .( the system didn't rate me as a person by my notes, or called me useful for obediently learning how to be a drone doing engineerings.

I thought by myself, learned a lot of things for me and others, and worked more than one day with my body, but the system didn't call me smart for that. I won't ever be as good as you and your grades, anon.

Thankfully, teachers here aren't fucking retarded like you and even though they wanted better grades, they encouraged me to keep being a self taught, not a parasitic amoeba to whatever flow the system is going. Good luck with engineering class, the competence is going to be rough to be the better sheep, but if you fail, you can always come back and post about best girls on /a/ .)

Honeslty it's kind of funny how, at least at least in the past two and a half years of uni, everything has been easier than my junior year of highschool. Sure the subject matter might be tougher but it's so much less work overall.

Naw, we're out there. I finished my masters in math a few years ago with my thesis focusing on different ways to determine distance estimators for deterministic 3d fractals.

Nowadays I work as a graphics programmer writing 3d graphics for scientific simulation software. I still use linear algebra and complex analysis on a daily basis.

To be fair, closed-book exams are a terrible way of evaluating someone's ability to actually do stuff.

You are never ever, in a working or research environment, going to be told "And you are not allowed to examine any relevant literature in order to do this thing" Because that is fucking stupid.

Project based tends to work much better. Although subjects like maths, it's harder to do.

The majority of my male friends value intelligent conversation to a certain extent. I could understand acting just a little dumb, but you can't really form an intimate connection with someone who goes around saying stuff like "Fun things are fun" all the time. Even the entertainment value would wear off pretty quickly.
Anyway, most of my friends would probably think something along the lines of "2dumb4me" if a girl acted as dumb a a brick around them.

Basic calculus only requires simple lateral thinking, following instructions and, perhaps most importantly of all, the ability to learn. Anyone can do it and those that can't do not have the requisite skills to wrap their head around a complicated political scenario such as antebellum Europe.

Thinking maths is hard is a self-fulfilling thing anyway, when you ignore pre-conceived ideas of the difficulty of things like calculus it becomes much easier. You could teach a 10 year old to differentiate, if you explain the rules and that the variables are just placeholders.

The main reason is to determine the student's ability to put in effort and learn, though.

0, because earth does not have enough volume to accommodate infinite pulleys therefore the system must be in space. no significant gravity in one direction vs the other, therefore no force to accelerate the masses.

I'm a guy and I generally do this around people I work with so they don't grow insecure around me. I don't act "dumb" per se, but whenever I explain something or ask someone a question I do it in the most basic way possible (and I subtly match their accent and/or style of speech).

It's generally easier to "get along," get what you want, or just generally go unnoticed when people think you are like them and/or aren't intimidated by you.
