    student test cramming

    Some teachers teach their students something brand new and turn around and have a test on it in the next few days!

    Do you think that it's a good thing to do?
    If not, ----is it bad???

    Thanks!

    I think it depends on the test. There is nothing wrong with giving the students a quiz to see how well they have been paying attention.

    It depends on whether the test is to check learning or to assess.
