SELF ASSESSMENT – Science
My name: Paris Da Silva Date: 18/11/2016
The unit I have just finished is: Introduction To MYP Science
My score in the end of unit test was: I got a 7
For the lab report I got: B 5 and C 5
I was happy / not happy with these results because: I was happy with these results because I improved on my lab report but of course in the future I would like to get a higher grade.
How am I doing?
I think I am doing good but there is definitely room for improvement in the future.
What I am good at?
So far I think I am good at general science for example setting up and doing an experiment, safety concerns and the equipment.
How do I know I am good at these things?
Because when we do activities involving these examples I don’t find it very hard.
I found the previous unit – Introduction to Science…….
Well I liked this unit because we learned a lot about what you can and can’t do in the lab and basic science knowledge but I hope the next unit involves a few more experiments because they are really fun to do and you learn a lot from them.
What I found difficult was……
I found the lab reports difficult because you really have to put every single piece of information you know about the experiment you did and it is hard to know when you have to change something.
What helped me when I had a problem was……
My teacher helped me a lot when I had a problem and if I didn’t understand something.
What I enjoyed in this unit was………
In this you the thing I enjoyed most was doing experiments because when you do it you learn a lot.
What I didn’t like in this unit was………
Something I disliked about this unit was that we didn’t do many experiments.
What do I need to work on?
I need to improve on lab reports because I don’t think I add enough information.
How do I know that I need to work on these things?
I know I need to work on this from my grades and just struggling whilst doing it.
How am I going to achieve these targets?
I am going to practice and study so that I can include as much as I can.
What time scale am I going to set myself to complete these targets? –
I would like to achieve them by the after the christmas break.
Are completing self-assessments like this useful for your development in Science? Why?
Yes this was helpful and useful because now when I am struggling I can look back on this assessment and see what I can do about it. For example if I am struggling with a lab report I can look back on this and find out what it is that I am doing wrong.
