Summary The purpose of the writing is to present an empirical sketch in the form descriptive report on a preliminary investigation into what views and opinions teachers as a front liner in the classroom have in conjunction with the implementation of UN
There are some opinion about national exam. a) Agree UN constitutes an idealized measure in the national vision that is expected to be able to get rid off the image regarding the low quality of national education in this global era. UN plays an important role as a motivating force for the students to envision in their learning
b) Disagree The establishing of the passing grade constitutes a stressor that potentially horrifies students Test items in UN have merely oriented to academic pedagogical perspectives, building a possible character for the students to be insensitive to their environment
The teacher who has autonomy to be an evaluator to evaluate the students’ learning progress and achievement.
Strengths By giving chance to the teacher on assessing their students’ learning progress and achievement will imply more demands on teachers’ roles, responsibilities, and accountability.
Weaknesses There seems to be a sense of insecurity in conducting classroom- based assessment to conclude the students’ learning progress and achievement.
What can be applied ? For the students’ national assessment, UN (national exam) still holds 60% and 40% of teacher’s autonomy. According to the first statement, we may be able to apply that statement in the other subjects.
