Ever since spell check was created, many people's spelling and grammar skills have greatly decreased. As our technological advances increase, our laziness does too. People shouldn't just know a subject, they should know how to clearly express their knowledge.
What if the teachers started to write like that too? I think it would be difficult for a student to learn something completely new expressed in that form, so the students shouldn't write like that either.
Are the UK exam boards being sensible in allowing the use of text-speak in examinations?
In Texas, every student must pass a state examination test, which consists of 5 parts:Writing, Language, Math, Science, and History. The writing part tests your knowledge of expression while the language part tests your understanding of the subject.
Maybe they should do something similar, instead of a combined test.
I certainly hope we don't have to create a new international support board: Text Speak
