Wiggins on Prioritizing Assessment

Soundbite, demonstrating once again we should listen to Grant Wiggins. From ASCD, about teachers who argue there is not enough time in the day for quality assessment with the required instruction:

If you say you don’t have time for assessment, you assume that the teaching is more important than the learning. Feedback is the key to reaching goals. Saying there’s no time is to confuse causing learning for mentioning stuff.”
