Does Testing Build Character? Generalized or Self?
We will be better served to teach students how to use natural-self-testing in their learning process, as so many "testing" approaches are not geared towards the individual.
Building one's character is an individual achievement, so it is very difficult for generalized testing to benefit.
This isn't as foreign as it may sound. We all test our selves, throughout life, so the natural inclination can be expanded upon.
