Graduate School–Midterms

Filed under: Teaching — williamthecoroner @ 21:12

Assessments are funny things. You want them to be a fair test of what you covered. It is good for students to have some sort of summative assessment to make sure they got the concepts. Formative assessments to make sure they can correct their course if needed. I’d really rather give just one assessment at the end of the course, but that is too much pressure, it is nice to learn the instructor’s style, instead of going for broke at the end.

Today was the mid-term. It broke down quite nicely to little bell curve, with a big peak in the 90’s.
