Beyond Getting the Right Answer

Education is more than just getting the right answer. It’s about asking the right questions, knowing how to work through difficulties, and solving problems.

Less reliance on high-stakes testing also reduces the anxiety at midterm and final exams. But this approach isn’t just for testing…allowing multiple attempts for assignments lets students learn from making mistakes and implementing constructive feedback.

In the real world we don’t often get things right the first time. But we keep trying, and we place a high value on persistence and continuous improvement. Visit Justin Tarte’s website for more great ideas and inspiration!
