"Mark, does FullMarks encourage teachers to create the best kind of
learning opportunities for their students? If so, why? If not, why

Personally, I can't stand the test-driven mentality that has permeated
education today. I feel that any site that makes it easier to deliver
tests (implying teachers convey information to learners, who then have
to demonstrate that they retained that information) has to do a great
deal to convince me that it brings anything of value to the
conversation. But that's only if I'm feeling grumpy, and admittedly,
I'm a little grumpy today. As a result, the question may be biased or
no good, and I freely admit to that.
