    I love this. I began teaching Math(s) this year and, because of the nature of the school year, I was not expected to grade in the established way…so I didn’t. A few years ago I studied Dynamic Systems Theory with Kurt Fischer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Your model of linear v non-linear comes close to DST. However, I must say that the Candyland like path model does not appeal to me because of its linearity. Might a student show mastery of goal 4 without demonstrating the same level in goal 3? We need to think of learning as 3 dimensional…a web…lots of ways to climb the hill…some dead ends along the way… Before school resumes in January I must try to create a reporting mechanism that meets my needs.
