"I looked quickly ... I think HW is the "doing" part of a regular system... that is where students put into action and practice what they learn. In a traditional Orthodox Jewish school it is very difficult to put into place a system of…"

"As a teacher I find giving and grading tests the worst part of the job as it requires much work out of the classroom to demonstrate what I already know about each student. As you said, if you the answer why test? I think we test so students can know…"

Teaching During Tests

I have found that students are most attentive and eager to learn during an actual test. The reasons are obvious as they have the pressure of the test weighing on them.
