Refer to Scenario 1. What could help explain the tendency for instructors to rush students through to their exams, even when the student does not feel ready?

(A) Instructors are rewarded for the total number of graduations under their supervision each term

(B) Instructors are rewarded based on the percentage of their students that pass their exam, divided by the average number of teaching hours per student

(C) Instructors are rewarded based on the number of students they get through the curriculum, divided by their total teaching hours in a term, regardless of whether the students pass their exam.

(D) None of the above

Explanation

Instructors have a tendency to rush students through to their exams, even when the student does not feel ready because the instructors are rewarded based on the number of students they get through the curriculum, divided by their total teaching hours in a term regardless of the students’ outcome. So, if a teacher rushes through the curriculum meaning he/she takes fewer hours to finish the curriculum then, he/she will be better rewarded than another teacher that takes more hours to finish the curriculum.
