A New Online Resource to Address Student Difficulties with English Exit Exam

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

A new resource has been added to the Learning Centre of the CCDMD, which focuses on English-language improvement. This additional tool aims at preparing students for the English Exit Exam (EEE). It is practical and interactive, addressing notions that cause difficulty for students, which are Techniques and Devices. Considering the importance of the exam, a certain degree of preparation is required to ensure success. The Learning Centre of CCDMD offers several different resources, including a tool for Writing Thesis Statements, which was the subject of a Profweb article. Paulette Cake, Project Manager for the CCDMD, directed me to the CCDMD Learning Centre to learn more about the exam and the resources that are available.

Exploring Student Assessment Systems: Part 2 – Socrative, Google Forms, Spiral, Piazza, and more!

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The last time I spoke with Anna Dera, Biology Teacher at CEGEP Champlain-St. Lawrence, she was thrilled to be sharing her experience about using Learning Catalytics, which you can read about in the Profweb article Exploring Student Assessment Systems: Part 1 – Learning Catalytics. At that time, she expressed her desire to try out some free platforms, as Learning Catalytics requires a student subscription fee. Anna’s research lead her to create a short list of free platforms to experiment with including Socrative, Google Forms, Spiral, and Piazza. A few students also used Quizlet on their own for studying purposes.
