The normal curve resulting from random chance was convicting. I used to interpret that distribution as a positive sign in my classes, but now it will make me question my approaches.

Bloom has a lot more to say about it than I quoted here, too. Among other things, he says that we shouldn't be too surprised if "ability" is normally distributed at the start of a semester. But if it still is normally distributed afterwards, then something's gone wrong. It's worth a read!
