I teach 7th grade pre-algebra, they tell us we cant grade them on anything but formative assessments(the test) But I dont tell my kids that or else they wont do their hw, which is the practice for the test. But then when it comes time for report cards and progress reports I cant grade them on HW. Sucks cause you have those kids who dont do any hw, play around in class, but get good test scores, and I have to give them a grade based on test scores. I dont like this, what do u think??
