    Grading and testing
    By chris

    I feel the way we grade,ie-give an assignment and grade it, really measures nothing more than how fast a kid learns. I personally feel we should introduce a skill, give lots of practice and when we feel the skill is mastered, evaluate for a grade. I feel assessment is necessary to plan where we are going. I think most schools consider assessment and evaluation one and the same. Assessment should measure where we are on the way to mastery but we should only evaluate when we think the skill is mastered.
