Weekly Quizzes are conducted in the first few minutes of class from Lesson 2 onwards. They test the content from the previous lesson and highlight any knowledge gaps in a timely manner. With weekly quiz results, students and parents can self-assess a student’s progress and learning throughout the term of the course.
Preparing for Quizzes
Quizzes for different subjects will have different knowledge or learning requirements. As a general rule, students should do the following to prepare for their quizzes:
- Review all your theory and workbook notes
- Thoroughly review and revise all the key concepts covered in classes thus far
- Ensure you have a detailed knowledge and understanding of what you have been taught to date
- Validate your knowledge by completing the workbook questions, if you struggle with certain types of questions or concepts you must review these concepts
- Don’t memorise responses. Memorisation and rote learning are useful for learning things like vocabulary, quotations, or a periodic table, but they are not substitutes for understanding processes. Rote learning won’t help you understand formulae, you need to be able to apply them!
