A Case for Measuring Student Progress

Progress tracking has always felt like a bit of a no brainer to me. If I signed up for a half marathon, and trained leading up to it but didn’t check if I was getting closer to 20 miles each week, I would be in a lot of trouble on the day of the race. If I needed to save $500 for a vacation and hoped I was putting away enough but didn’t check my bank account until I got to the airport, I probably would not be boarding that flight.
