Sometimes, I post something that really strikes the heart of my readers. An old post I had about measuring character qualities other than academic ones, was one of those posts.  

It struck the heart of my readers so much so, that I had people asking me for a poster of those non-academic qualities! So, here ya go. I've gone and created a poster for you to print and hang on your fridge for a daily reminder that academic grades aren't everything you are measuring. 

Because, you know what is NOT measured by tests? Character!
