Prolific author and passionate educator, Starr Sackstein, is my guest again, this time for a great conversation about why and how to go gradeless and move beyond tests and quizzes for better assessments. After our chat, Starr plays another awesome round of The 5-Minute Game Show. Don’t miss the special code I give out just to listener’s to save 20% on my Lenses of Questioning course. See below for more information.

Special thanks to Starr Sacktein and my fauxmercial helpers, Ami Korn, Naphtali Bookstein, Tuvia Frankel and Yossie Frankel.
