Fail Your or Their?

What's behind many students not doing well on an assignment or test?
What do you think is going on when only a few of your students do well on a test or an assignment?
These students are either too stupid or they don't care enough to do well!
I think I screwed up; only the super bright students seem to understand what's going on!
The reasons behind this type of situation often turn out to be a mix of these two extremes; sometimes more heavily weighted on one side than the other.
Action Steps: Encourage your students to do the work necessary to learn what is presented in class. Make sure you hold them accountable; insist they meet the standards you have set in your class assignments. Provide learning experiences that make it possible for your students to understand and acquire the knowledge and skills presented in class. Make sure your assignment and test designs cover what has actually been taught.
