Great first posting on the blog. I hope you will keep it up. My favorite blog is Becker-Posner blog, and I'm sure you have at least as much to add as those gentlemen.

this education war really scares me a lot.

Is it OBVIOUS that our country cares more about war than education?
I ask because of the amount of war funding since this thing began, and the lack of funding for education since I've been born. Now, I ask all of you all to set aside your political influence (If you can), bias and education, and tell me if I'm wrong.

I believe that there is a need for both! As a former pre-school throgh college instructor (wide range!), I have seen at every level that there is high value in both forms of assessment.

Objective measurement works in Training while subjective (and individualized) measurement is better for Education. As I wrote in 2004:

"I think that one of the problems with our education system is that there is too much of a focus on getting quantitative data, like testing. These functions are more suited to a "training" system, where the performance requirements are clear, measurable and observable. In education, the performance requirements are fuzzy. There is nothing wrong with either a training focus or an education focus; each one has its merits. The problem is when you try to mix the two. The arguments that I hear over testing or the adoption of blogs in the classroom seem to be the result of mixing a training systems design approach with a general educational approach. Water and oil."
