Should Instructional Designers “Teach to the Test”?

Bottom-Line Performance

There is a lot of angst these days in the education field about “teaching to the test.” This reviewer said, “We need to go beyond teaching to the test.” We act as if it is shameful if we “only” teach to a test, but why? Perhaps we are afraid that teaching to a test limits our ability to deliver a rich, meaningful experience that elevates the general abilities of the learner.

Games do teach

Clark Quinn

So it’s hard to want to quibble, but she put out what I think is a somewhat irresponsible post on games with the provocative title “ Why Games Don’t Teach “ So it’s only fair that I raise my objections, though the comments do a great job also of pointing out the problem.
