Page 14 – Academic Goal Setting
This can be used at the start of the new term to help students identify an area they would like to improve over the course of the term. Collect the forms and plan to hold mini-conferences throughout the term where you talk with each student about their goals and update their goal sheet together.
Page 15 – Pre-Assessment Evaluation
This reflection is intended for students to complete immediately after taking an assessment, but before it is graded. It will help them determine how prepared they were for the exam.
Page 16-17 – Post-Assessment Reflection
This reflection for is intended for students to fill out when you return the assessments. Have them fill out the first side as you pass back the papers (lay them upside-down on the students’ desks.) They are instructed to view their test when they get to the bottom of the first page of this reflection. The second page will help students process any errors they made and make a plan for remediation if a plan is needed and you allow remediation points. If you don’t allow students to earn back points, just use the first page.
Page 18 – Assessment Corrections
This form is intended to help students organize and process errors they made on an assessment. If the chart entries are too small, students can regenerate the chart on their own paper using the same headings as provided.
Page 19-20 – Midterm Student Reflection
A natural time for students to reflect on their performance is at the midterm. You can use this form to get your students thinking about where they stand right now and what needs to be done before the end of the term arrives. There is also a place for parents to sign and write comments for you to read when this sheet is returned.
Page 21 – Preparing for Parent-Teacher Conferences
This form can be use to guide conversations during parent-teacher conferences. Have the student fill it out first, and then write your comments afterwards. If parents do not show up to conferences, you can mail this form home so they can still get the update from you.
Page 22 – Getting Caught Up Checklist
Here is an easy-to-use format you can use to help a student get caught up when they fall very far behind with their assignments. Hopefully you won't have to use this too much!
Page 23-24 – End of Term Reflection
This reflection is meant to help students reflect on their entire school year and recognize their growth while identifying areas they can still improve in the future.
