Grading is such an embedded practice in our public education system. I have blogged about it a little before. It is a topic that interests me as I find out more and more what experts and gurus in academic assessment are saying. I recently contacted one who noted that grades are "artificial constructs."
No one has been as bold in criticizing our school system's grading practices as Alfie Kohn. This article by him will make clear just what I'm talking about.
This is the second part of my challenge for today to share resources with others that I think are interesting and useful. If you do read it, then please take a moment to comment what you think of it.
