I agree with your position about this. I often think of it in these terms:
we want to talk about depth of learning and not just proficiency in regards
to skills and content. To do that, we need to offer al "alternative world"
to the one that argues for more and more high stakes testing. The tools you
propose seem really consistent with that.
And thanks for sharing the article.
