University Should Allow Students to Audit Classes
Many universities allow students to audit classes. That is, students may attend lectures and discussions for a particular class without completing the assignments, receiving a grade, or earning credit for the class. I think our university should allow this. Auditing classes would be good for interested students, since they would be able to learn more and experience a variety of different classes that they would not otherwise be able to take. Furthermore, it shouldn't create ant difficulties or additional obligations for professors, because these students wouldn't take tests or white papers that need to be graded.
The woman expresses her opinion about the letter writer's proposal. Briefly summarize the proposal. Then state her opinion about the proposal and explain the reasons she gives for holding that opinion.
Preparation Time: 30 seconds
Response Time: 60 seconds
The letter supposes that students should be allowed to audit class. It also gives two reasons: one reason is it can help interested students to learn more and enrich their experience; the other reason is because auditing students are not asked to take exams or be graded, so it will add no workload to professors. However, the woman rebuts this proposal. She thinks accepting auditing students will be bad for students who are taking this class because auditing students won’t spend enough time to prepare before class and thus will affect the quality of class discussion. The second reason given by her is although it seems that little workload will be added, in fact professors will still need to memorize extra names and need to answer the questions from auditing students. So it also requires professor’s lots of attention.
