Marks and Grades

How useful are they anyway?
Here is an article by Alfie Kohn who indicates his research shows marks and percentage grades do not promote learning.

There are other ways to assess work, provide feedback and promote learning in the 21st Century.
Read and reflect on his message.

    Comments have come in here,via email, Twitter and Facebook. Mr.Roes. Hope you are having a fabulous year in Hong Kong at the Delia School of Canada! It's amazing to see how far out this Teacher Resource Web Page has gone. I am glad to hear it was helpful. I guess you are as far away as you can get! Thanks for sending the positive feedback!
