I entered the Math Forum for an assignment in my Master's Math/Sci course. My primary teaching area is actually life science. The original author brings up an interesting area for further discussion, does "consistent" which I thought meant constant, evaluation affect a average student's morale ? My current high school students are averge and below in achievement, attendance, and attitide toward school. I have found the fewer # of "tests" I give, the better their attitude toward the material and me seems to be. I give more informal assessments, small projects, etc with this audience. Some day perhaps I will get a group of self-motivated kids that I can use mor traditional methods with. I am currently gathering data in this area for my master's project, so I'll write back later. Bonjour! LSG
