53 A B C D E F G H I Feedback from Chris Fauske in November 2008: "The map looks as if it will lead to some interesting data, William. ne thing you might find is that there are some classes that appear to be trying to do too much--can a class really, for example, introduce students to 12 different concepts? nce this is complete and you get to look at what classes seem to do nothing, some to do too much, and some areas that are either over-taught or under-visited, you get to move on and look at the assessment instruments being used. You say, for example, that students will be expected to understand key figures. Are you really assessing for understanding in the exams / assignments in these classes, rather than merely for knowledge of?" 201
