Three Part “Type I” test applied to Homework

This test essentially asks the following three questions that each teacher should ask oneself to ensure they are effectively nurturing the creative buds in students:

  1. Am I offering students the AUTONOMY over how and when they do the homework?
  2. Does the assignment promote MASTERY by offering a novel and engaging task?
  3. Do the students understand the PURPOSE of the ASSIGNMENT?
