    Exam wrapper Exam wrapper Presentation Transcript

    • Exam Wrappers Learning about how you have learned
    • Rationale • Students focused on “the grade” above all else – “Will this be on the test?” – “Are we responsible for this?” • Few students spontaneously assess efficacy of study techniques • Students benefit from prompting assessment of their outcomes from their behaviors
    • Mechanism • When exam returned short handout given to students – How did they prepare? – What did they get wrong? – How do you plan to change? • What can the course change? • Keep these and redistribute about a week before the next exam if possible
    • How did they prepare? • Students confront what they did • Emphasizes many tools that can be used to learn the content – Highlights tools learners may not have realized they possess – Makes them consider how they could or should have prepared
    • What did they get right and wrong? • Makes learners objectively look at where they lost points – Do well – no need to review missed questions – Do poorly – “leave the pain behind” • Can assess where they were stuck with questions
    • How do you plan to change? • Students see the association between studying and exam performance • Can choose more effective studying methods
    • Advantages • Minimal time used from instructional time • Minimal time commitment from students • Not specific to educational topic • Can be used multiple times with continued benefit

    • – Analyze performance *strength/weaknesses – How to improve future learning • How do you improve studying for next time? – Teachers can assess patterns • Change emphasis of content • Make students aware of successful methods
