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 barrie.matthews@core-ed.org 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.

  • Remember you can listen to the web conferences again from the conference recordings if you want to gather more information.
