In school, I always felt really wronged when a homework assignment was
out of 20 points but I only got like 14 question correct....that's a
70%. Scores like this obviously would make my grades go down!!! My
math teachers never allowed me to resubmit homework....but Why should
practice make one's over all performance go down??
decided to do my students a bit of justice and the craziest thing
happened in my classes when I decided to make homework optional. This
was so totally unexpected! Students do more homework than I would ever
dream of assigning to them. Why? cause in my class, homework isalways extra credit!!
What is your take on this phenomenon?
