|In all, a total of 20 students were involved in this assessment event.|
In retrospect, TAB learning experience is used here as a form of behavior modification. I have done constructed response-portfolio assessments with students my entire teaching career. The new Indiana teacher evaluation program, RISE, dictates to teachers they must engage in behavior modification. This is what the state wants. Even if this assessment was successful from the state's point of view, is it morally proper? What about children who regress after baseline events due to environmental influences beyond their control and the teachers control? What does the state have to say about that?
