I had an interview today where I was asked this question... Suppose you have a student. He gets high A's on every test and essay and project you give - 100 or close to it. But he refuses to do homework. He says he knows the material and doesn't need the extra practice in school. What should the kid's grade be? I got a really positive response from my answer, but I am curious as to how others would have answered it, then I will share what I said, and what they said.
