The Japanese school system primarily consists of six-year elementary schools, three-year junior high schools and three-year high schools, followed by a two-or-three-year junior colleges or a four-year colleges. However that is not what makes the education system of Japan unique. What does make it interesting is how the teachers mark their student's answers and its actually different from how they are marked here in Kenya.
When Japanese teachers check the tests of their students, you might actually get surprised to find out that they use symbols to indicate whether a student is right or wrong. Here are some examples of symbols that might be different from how your teacher marked your exam papers.
In Japan, circling an answer is a symbol of perfection and is used it to indicate correctness.
Unlike here in Kenya, checkmarks are not a good sign when they are full on a students test. They are used to suggest that the student has made a lot of mistakes in his/her test.
The triangle symbol may indicate that the students answer is not correct but not completely incorrect.
4) Flower circle
This symbol is what excites Japanese students the most because it typically means the student has excelled in the test.
Now you have a clue of how answers are marked by Japanese teachers. Thank you for your time. Be blessed.
