Following the success of our printable assessment wrappers (a.k.a. exam wrappers) which can be downloaded by clicking here we wanted to make a re-usable universal assessment wrapper that didn’t require printing or reliance on worksheets: this is more budget friendly and more environmentally friendly for many teachers.
This assessment wrapper is delivered via PowerPoint and features fifty metacognition and self-regulated learning activity slides; twenty-five that can be used before assessments and twenty-five that can be used after assessments. It also features an interactive 'randomiser' feature so that teachers can quickly load up the PowerPoint and generate random reflection tasks for the start and end of lessons.
Simply load up this PowerPoint when you’re doing assessment work with students: it will foster metacognition through its many pre and post-assessment student reflection tasks. Assessment wrappers are a straightforward way to foster metacognition and one of the most established and well-evidenced approaches to metacognition borne out by the research literature.
Alternatively, this assessment wrapper (with over fifty activity slides) can be used by teachers to enhance presentations they have already made: teachers can simply copy and paste slides from this resource into their own work – allowing for a more precise and integrated assessment wrapper effect to be used in the learning process.
This assessment wrapper (or exam wrapper) is of particular interest to teachers working with students who are preparing for formal examinations (e.g. GCSE exams) and is a great way to help them get more out of practice assessments!
