The main way we confirm that a student has truly mastered their understanding of the maths that they learn is through the test that they complete every fortnight. This test will be managed by your coordinator, so really all you need to do is sit tight and wait for instructions.
Tests are generated on every second Monday. When it’s time for the test, you will see a “start test” link on you timeline. Follow the instructions to complete the written and online portion of your test.
Once the student completes the online test, it will be automatically marked. Once they complete the printed questions, just scan or take a photo of the test and email it back to your coordinator. They will mark it and let you know when it’s done – that will allow the student to complete their reflection online.
Don’t worry if that sounds complicated – each step will be very obvious as you go through it.
Why don’t you just do all the tests online?
To get a true sense of a student’s abilities and understanding, some things are much better assessed through description or drawing. This allows us to ensure that students have a real understanding of their maths, rather than just learning formulas off by heart.
