    My analogy with the problem you're bringing up is limbo artists vs. high jumpers. My AP/Honors kids will usually high jump a task. No matter where I put the bar they'll jump over it. Too many of my lowest achieving kids in my non-AP/honors classes will limbo every task  by seeing if they can slide under the bar of expectations.
