    Always feel sufficiently convicted when I take your courses and listen to your podcasts! I still use these archaic ways almost to show parents/ admin that things are happening in my class. Somewhere in the back of my mind is the thought that there must be more to this. I feel like Jon was recounting my training on formative and summative assessments. However, I feel slightly redeemed in the fact that I encourage redos on just about everything and strongly suggest conversations with me to iron out misconceptions and errors.

    I’m wondering how to use assessment in ways that are less damaging, admin-pleasing, parent-pleasing, student-growing…? I have a small class load and small classes, at that. So this is a great year to try to try new things and experiment.
