Tell us about your idea

Students should have small quizzes at the end of each to week and tests at the end of the unit instead of having to do big projects. Projects are difficult to complete home due to the lack of resources and especially because most people can't leave their houses. It is smarter to do online quizzes/tests. 

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

Some parts I want to leave behind from the pre-covid school system are doing busy work assignments because it is a complete waste of time.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

Something that inspired me to share this idea is due to the reason I have to deal with it every day from my Spanish and history classes. 

What region are you located in?

  • North America

Where are you located?

I am located in the suburbs of Chicago. My neighborhood is very peaceful.

Hi Joshua. You have picked up on an issue that many students face and teachers should take note. Do you have ideas about how the tests and quizzes might be structured to ensure learning? or can you think of alternatives to tests and quizzes that would also help students demonstrate what they have learned?
