Reflection on the Standard:

In this Education course  assignment, I had to discuss current evaluation and grading practices I thought were both beneficial and harmful to students and their learning.  This assessment assignment allowed me to evaluate my own personal dispositions toward grading. The assignment gave me the opportunity to think critically about which types of assessments would work best based on my own content area.
