SELF ASSESSMENT – Science
My name: Isabella McClay Date: 18th November 2016
The unit I have just finished is:
Introduction To MYP Science
My score in the end of unit test was:
I got a 6
For the lab report I got: B 6 and C 4
I was happy / not happy with these results because:
I was happy with my results for the end of unit test because I think I did quite well and I know I tried really hard for the test. But I was a bit disappointed by the lab report because I knew I could of done better than what I actually handed in.
How am I doing?
I think I am doing well but I could definitely improve on skills and things I need for in the future when I do experiments or when I am going to take a test.
What I am good at?
I think I am good at the booklet we have done and learning about science equipment and safety rules in a lab.
How do I know I am good at these things?
Because when we doing the two experiments we have done I remembered the equipment and all the safety rules.
I found the previous unit – Introduction to Science…….
Interesting and fun because I learnt a lot of new skills needed in science and I had great fun doing the experiments.
What I found difficult was……
I found the lab report the hardest because I had never written one before and it took me a while to realise how it worked and what I needed to write under the headings.
What helped me when I had a problem was……
My teacher. My teacher helped me to understand what I had to write and explained how I needed to write it.
What I enjoyed in this unit was………
In this unit I enjoyed the experiments that we did and how they turned out. I had never done an experiment before so this was really fun.
What I didn’t like in this unit was………
In this unit i did not really like that we didn’t do many experiments.
What do I need to work on?
I need to work on my lab reports and general science information.
How do I know that I need to work on these things?
Because with my lab report i didn’t get a really high score and same with my end of unit test because I know if I tried harder i would get at least a 7 or a double 6 on my lab report.
How am I going to achieve these targets?
I am going to achieve these targets by studying harder and I am going to try really hard to do my best.
What time scale am I going to set myself to complete these targets? –
I am going to set my time scale by the Christmas holidays.
Are completing self-assessments like this useful for your development in Science? Why?
I think it is helpful and useful because I can look back and see my targets and what I need to improve on and how I want to do this.
