  • I come from a family of engineers.That son I was talking about is a Mechanical Engineer working on PhDAs a computer scientist I barely qualifyWhen we talk about feedback loops, we can’t avoid getting into control theory.Open loopRequires a precise system to get predictable output.If the system breaks down and output goes haywire, input unchangedClosed feedback loopController adjusts the input to get predictable output
  • Feedback in education is pretty much the sameStudent is not a precise systemAnd we like it that way.Foolish to standardize the activities because variation among students is guaranteed to produce a wide variety of results.Son’s exampleOne exam in all of high schoolMeasure of mathematical competency reduced to a single integer between 1 and 100InfrequentSlowWeak
  • Nearly any content could be a learning resource. So, LRMI addresses those properties that distinguish the use of
