Student self-assessments

  • Your students can complete the online pre-test and post-test student self-assessment forms for this field trip. Once completed you can email help@learnz.org.nz to have your class submissions extracted and emailed to you. It's OK if just some of your students have filled them in or if they have submitted either self-assessment rather than both.
