About Gary Ockey

Gaining a better understanding of language can help us in every aspect of our lives. In my classes, I try to motivate students to investigate how they use and evaluate others’ use of language. Many of us, especially those of us who have been teachers, have had bad experiences with tests. I try to help students recognize that tests can be used in both positive and negative ways, and it is our responsibility to do all that we reasonably can to develop the most appropriate tests possible for any given situation and to do our best to ensure their proper use.
