    Key Ideas I took away from this particular lesson introduction include; grades should not be based in completion or participation, assessments should provide further information about instruction, assessment for power not punishment. I already only input grades attached to particular standards but my method for collecting those grades are still based on quizzes and tests. I would like to learn better ways to collect the data. In addition, I replace grades as students better understand the content but I fear that the students do not understand the connection between the grade change and growth of their knowledge…because I again assess with a quiz or test.
