measurement and progress


2007-11-22

Mark McElroy: "the constant pressure to earn awards and achieve recognition does little more than assure students will produce only what people are already primed to appreciate. Anything that radically breaks with tradition is unlikely to be well received.

Worse, a competitive educational environment -- stressing the value of recognition and praise from others -- very quickly converts students into attention addicts."

Note: this is an old post from 2006 I found lying in my drafts folder. I think it's still a very valid statement, so I'll just post it without the extra commentary and discussion I seem to have planned to add to it :)
