In sum, Alonso’s’ article on supporting examinations proved to be an effective one. It serves to inform the reader to make sense of why examinations are an important part of our academic system. The writer uses enough information and examples to present her point of view on the topic. After the completion of reading this article, a reader could easily see the authors’ point of view even if they don’t agree. The most effective writing in the article has to be the last paragraph. In that paragraph the author wrote that, “examinations are a learning experience for the students.” (LBR, pg. 318)
