Reviews

"I love this book. It undermines the mythology around grading, helping us understand that (a) grading is a construction, and a relatively recent one at that, and (b) we'd be better off without it--as would our students."
Paul Hanstedt, author of Creating Wicked Students: Designing Courses for a Complex World
"Nuanced and well balanced."
