I agree. Although I would prefer not to spend time creating data walls, as with anything, there can be benefits. I think it gives students an opportunity to assess their own work with their peers. Names don't need to be listed.
On another note, yes, unfortunately the field of education is not what it used to be and we are constantly being told what to do. This teacher isn't doing this because she wants to, but rather it is state mandated.
P.S. Rhonda… I think it is fabulous!
