This is a very engaging, challenging, and meaningful way for students to learn and for teachers to understand and assess what their students comprehend."

Assessment should reflect purpose. We require summative assessment in our society and yet we know learners thrive, grow and develop on a diet of formative assessment. The balance is the key! Feedback and the use of authentic assessment tasks are critical positive factors.
