    the same page. I'd assign separate achievement levels to verbal, math and science skills and allow students to advance or be held back by subject. I realize that interaction issues exist but I suspect an inspired science student might be motivated to try harder at math or comprehension. In a similar vein, is it likely that the "ability to take tests" or lack thereof correlates with verbal skills and reading comprehension?

    •  that's a neat idea. (0+ / 0-)

      And yes, I'm sure that higher levels of reading comprehension are a necessary condition for doing well on any kind of test.

      have to be turned into a grand exercise of ranking and "holding back", and not just learning at ones own pace to ones own standards?
