I read article on o-net scores of Thai students. It said the averages of o-net scores of Mathayom-six students are decreasing. It is lower than last year. Some subject like Social, English, or Art, the average scores are lower than 40 of 100 because the form of the test was changed to be more difficult. This year when o-net scores were announced, it hasn’t show the average score of all students who do the test because it was very low and they afraid that many parents and students will protest the o-net organization. Many parents are very concern about the score because it’s very important for the Admission.
I think this article is correct about the score decreasing because the organization that creates the test has adjusted the test form to be more difficult. And I think if the test is too difficult for the students, it can’t evaluate the student for the wise. It’s measured by the fate of each student. I am one of the students who have tested the new o-net. And I know that some subject is too difficult for the student. Ordinary National Education Test (o-net), it is the fundamental test for all students all curriculums. It should not be too difficult. The organization that creates the o-net should adjust to the simple one.
