Concevoir des évaluations... qui évaluent vraiment

Souvent mobilisés pour évaluer les apprenants à la fin d'une séquence, ou les aider à procéder à l'autoévaluation de leurs acquis en cours de séquence, les QCM servent malheureusement trop souvent à évaluer à peu près tout et n'importe quoi.

Jim Kelly (whose jersey number is the only one the Bills have retired) proudly wore number 12 for eleven years, winning more than 100 games. Starting in 1990, he did something that no other quarterback in history has ever achieved: He led his team to FOUR straight Super Bowls.
