Update on Gardner’s APGAR

A couple weeks ago I mentioned introducing Gardner’s APGAR assessment to my First Year Seminar students. My students subsequently corrected my math, much as Gardner suggested in his comment to my post: The average APGAR for the class turned out to be 50%, not the 10% I indicated earlier. Fortunately, this didn’t change the conclusion: the students weren’t adequately prepared for class.

Next year I hope to try the APGAR on a regular basis.
