There is much discussion lately about disliking timed tests and I agree. But, let’s look at the other side of the issue. #gtchat
Sometimes kids don’t finish stuff because they lack the ability to maintain focus. It could help us to use “trouble with timed tests” as a clue to a learner’s trouble with being able to maintain focus and mindfulness.
There are times when I encourage learners to pick up the pace so that they are more mindful of the task at hand.
