Writing tips:

Suggested format:

1) First paragraph: What? What is the point? Get to it right away. If you are not exactly sure yet how you want to argue on your issue then write your paper anyway. By the time that you finish you likely will know. So then take that conclusion and plug it in up front.
2) Second Paragraph: So what? Why should anyone care about your main point. Perhaps you can refer to what others have said about your issue and so you can note why your view is superior to their view and therefore more worthy of attention. Or argue how your view on the matter benefits the wider community, etc.
3) Rest of paper: How? How can you say what you are saying? Presentation or explication of your evidence, logic, and references.

Write in a careful, step-by-step, even boring fashion. You become the expert on your topic so you must always explain why you are writing what you are writing. Never expect readers of your paper to be able to read your mind; don’t assume readers know what you mean without explanation. You should define your main terms. The better papers have a good idea and are clear, i.e. they focus on one main reason very carefully and thoroughly.


The aim of taking a child to an education institution is to foster holistic  growth and development of the child. Therefore, it is important to keep on monitoring the progress of the child. Standardized testing have been employed in our education institution to  measure the progress of the child academically and in other areas of growth. Following Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligence, the best education  will be that which will foster holistic growth of the child and foster growth and development in the specific intelligence of the child. Intelligence is the ability of the child to take in  and process information  or to learn in an efficient manner.  Intelligence therefore relates to the  the potential of the child for learning of processing information. Standardized testing should therefore be regularly used in K-12  in order to measure the progress  the child is making.
