There are many debates going on regarding the current education system and the standardized testing method. I agree that the current Standardized Testing system only judges a fish by its ability to climb the tree. Most of the time the learner is being pushed to study; they are not being pulled into learning by the education system. Education systems in the past have generally focused their attention on creating employees not entrepreneurs. We, as educators, dig inside students and expect them to perform well in the subjects offered by the school curriculum but seldom do we try to identify or discover the special talent buried deep inside each one of them and help nurture them to develop and grow in their own specialization. Student Centered Learning is not just about the teacher being in the class and delivering the subject. It is about deploying various teaching methods to make the learners understand the concept and evaluate them based on their unique outcomes. In order to enhance the learners’ interest to learn and make them self-reliant in the learning process, it is important to include real-time examples for them to understand the concepts and solve problems based on their understanding.[1]
