This is something that should be abundantly clear, but in case it isn’t, I want to make it clear. If you want to make a comment, even one in which you criticize my line of thinking, that’s fine, but you will stand behind your words with a real e-mail address or your comment will not appear. I am sharing my thoughts here with my real name, and I can be contacted through a real address that is accessible on this site. If you are too cowardly to say what you have to say in the fear that I might disagree and let you know that, I would suggest you not bother commenting.
I got a comment from a person known to me only as Erik H., and he called me a bad teacher, insinuating that changing the way I assess and test is completely within my control. My thinking is that this person does not work in conditions in which there is sometimes a prescribed curriculum that requires some subjects to be taught in certain ways. I have no trouble being challenged to think about my practices, but I will not be heckled by cowards who will not stand behind their criticism.
