The Mathematics Department has introduced a new initiative for students to reflect on their performance after each topic test. The aim of this initiative is to enable student’s to look at ways in which they can improve their understanding, their revision program and to think about their effectiveness while sitting assessment under timed conditions. They will be asked to record their self-evaluation on the Reflection Sheet at the back of each test. Parents and students are required to sign this document and then the student is expected to return it to his/her Maths teacher as soon as possible.
The faculty feels this may enable greater parent awareness of student performance and encourage students to set goals to help improve their competency. Parents are advised to keep an eye out for this reflection form after tests have been corrected.
