The two I pulled out this week as favorites have to do with grading, of course, as that topic has been on my mind this school year. Check out perspectives from two right-wingers:
- Darren is perplexed by students who see grades as a means to an end (like getting into college) and not a measurement of their learning. Tests and quizzes are the opportunities for kids to show what they know.
- Meanwhile, Right Wing Nation contemplates whether or not "good vs. bad" test-taking abilities exist. A thoughtful piece, indeed.
Anyway, get on over to the Carnival and stimulate yourself. Your brain will thank you for it.
