Strengths and weakness questionnaire

Overall rating 4 out of 54.1 (15 ratings)

Last updated 29 October 2013, created 08 August 2010, viewed 12,890

A relatively short questionnaire to get students thinking about how they work academically. I made it for my year 9 tutor group to complete at the start of the year. The students have to decide how they match up to a list of characteristics e.g. “I complete and hand in my homework on time”. More… The idea is that the list of characteristics are those shown by successful students. The aim is then to compile a short list of strengths and areas to improve. Could be done as a class or small groups with discussion. It is not exhaustive but I find stuents get put off by long questionnaires.

starting a mentoring programme with some low level/disengaged year 9 students. Will be excellent.

Great, thanks. I'll try it with a couple of my students who are asking for additional support.
