Exam Wrapper (Self-Reflection Exercise)

Laurie S. Starkey
Cal Poly Pomona

A metacognitive "exam wrapper" to be given after the first midterm, focusing the student’s attention on three areas:
• How did I prepare for this exam?
• What kinds of mistakes did I make?
• What will I do differently next time?
Student instructions: By taking a step back and thinking about the way you learn, you can improve your learning! An "exam wrapper" survey will guide you through an exercise in self-reflection, with the goal of improving your performance on the next exam.
