Who invented Examination

Examination is used to test our learning capacity, one who conduct an exam is called an examiner.

Exams was invented by an American businessman and philanthropist known as Henry Fischel somewhere in the late 19th century. However, some sources attribute the invention of standardized assessments to another man by the same name, i.e. Henry Fischel.

His basic idea is that a person should examine things (events, persons, etc.) ... Note: These picture messages shared online in various versions and languages claim to show an American person called Henry Fischel (or Henry Mishel) who supposedly is the first person to invent Exams. The claims are possibly hoax.

Professor Henry Fischel began life as Heinz Albert Fischel, born to Anna and Adolf in Bonn, Germany in 1913. His father, who was a front soldier in World War I, came from a large family, and the Fischel brothers were known as leaders in the shoe business; they owned and operated a chain of shoe stores throughout the Rhineland. Adolf ran the store in Bonn, and Anna worked in the business as well. Heinz had one sister, Lotte.

In recalling his childhood in Bonn, Henry remembered the beauty of his hometown, and the particular influence of three local institutions on his character and aspirations: a celebrated university, the childhood home of Ludwig van Beethoven, and its only synagogue on the banks of the Rhine. In addition, Henry had a wide range of interests: playing chess, soccer, tennis, and also pursuing boxing. His father was prominent in the boxing world, and twice Henry competed in international bouts as a youth fly weight. Born in Bonn, birthplace of Beethoven, of which he was very proud, he could not but be a pianist. It seems that a baby-grand piano was a permanent fixture at home for decades. When he got to Meadowood, he held numerous recitals accompanied by commentaries, quizzes and esoteric remarks reminiscent of Carl Haas to delight and entertain his audience. Though he did not admit it, but as all who knew him learned, he was a closet borscht-belt comedian. His ability to tell jokes, his timing and phrasing were impeccable. Yet he was too gentle and could not bring himself to be as vulgar as most of them were.

Henry Fischel died 18 march 2008. Many student are afraid of writing exam because they are lazy.
