    Re: How Do You Assess Students?

    Hi Ketina,
    And yes you will still find those students that no matter what you do they will try anything the can to not participate. Some of these students are here not because they want to but because the were forced to be here, so they are already putting up a wall. I really know how frustrated it can be, I also let them know that I accept them to write or answer some words in their native language, but I let them know I really want to see progress. I also praise them when they participate even if the answer is wrong.

    See my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I worry about the over-dependence on standardized testing, which is reductionist in its scope, but I still see it as playing a useful role.

    This is good for morale, but I feel it needs to be backed up with explaining where to go to get it right.
