<<Assessment of PLAY & CARE was a challenge, however. Crowe was required to
grade each of his 300 students four times a year. The grading system was as
O = Outstanding
S = Satisfactory
N = Needs Improvement
To align this grading system to his PLAY & CARE centers-based curriculum, he
took a creative approach. "I decided to base a grading system on a version
of the old 'saw':
A laborer uses his/her hands.
A craftsman uses his/her hands and mind.
An artist uses his/her hands, mind, and heart.
