I was a MATH teacher and, although the idea of integrating math into the classroom is appealing, I would NEVER have done this to my students. I was a middle level teacher and they would have done poorly just to laugh at themselves and make fun of those that cared enough to do well. I am also a parent of a child whose medical condition causes her to be more emotional, she is also very capable. Her chart would be all over the map because her knowledge is very dependent upon her state of mind and other mitigating factors. Her ability to be confident would be shattered. I have already asked that her personal information NEVER be displayed even anonymously because there is such a high potential for her to be recognized. I get the well intentions here, just thinking this is TMI to be public....
