Favorite Comments of '12: Mnemosyne's Notebook

On The guide on the side: obsessed with assessment

Mnemosyne's Notebook said...

What would the teachers do with those predictions? Place bets with the High School Assessment/Gaming Commission?

"I'll bet $300 that Tommy earns no better than a C in Algebra II when he takes it 3 years from now."

Or over/under bets, "Billy will either drop out due to boredom or get an A in pre-calculus."

We could pay middle school teachers less and have the better ones supplement their incomes this way, though we'd need to come up with a system to prevent collusion with the high school teachers.
