Thanks for sharing the findings! I am drawn to the word "demonstrate" found in both statements. As a K-12 and Higher Education educator, I am amazed at how my K-12 students must demonstrate their understanding and mastery of the content and learning objectives as a sign of passage. However, I see so many Higher Education students who think "seat time" should result in a passing grade. In some ways, I suggest that America has bought into the idea of entitlement. In other words, people feel that they should "get" because they "deserve" for some reason.
