If this is true, should anyone receive a grade of 100% on a test, paper, or demonstration of skill? Obviously, with Diminishing Returns, none of us ever gets it perfect. Are such scores counterproductive in that they create a sense of “being done” or “right” that stops our learners for continuing to practice? Should we eliminate tests and scores because they are artificial and deter continuous development? Take a position and write a two to three paragraph position statement.
