A grading system developed by Herkimer County Community College that rewards thoughtful questions and thorough answers leads to a better understanding of course concepts.
"A good question is one which will require students to use their critical analysis skills.
A good question will require the respondent to demonstrate both factual knowledge of the content and a comprehension of how the knowledge applies to the social behavior of people.
It should not be a simple 'look-up in the textbook' question or just a 'what's your opinion?' question."
