Juz like to check whether other schools has the same practice. Before the Investigative Math Test, my dd's class was given a practice paper. They were asked to write their answers on a separate sheet of paper. The teacher went thru the paper with them, after that all question & answer sheets were collected back, & the teacher told them that all papers would be shredded. Today the teacher gave the actual test paper back to them, went thru the paper & again collected back.
I am puzzled. Isn't it weird!? We as parents do not even know what our kids are learning & tested in schools.


Same for my ds's school. Nothing could be brought back. Before the test, the teacher even told them there was nothing to revise or prepare.


That's what my dd used to tell me too for Investigative Math. Nothing to revise nor prep for. Just show up and take the test. I was concerned for the first test but after that realized the students and teachers knew what was going on and there was nothing I should be concerned about.

Yes, I think it's letter writing too. Recently saw my DS brought back 2 letter writing work. I think one of them is part of their portfolio for this term.
Zann, go check with your kid. :smile:


ds usually has "poor memory" or like to "三缄其口" :stompfeet:

Hi 25 hr mama, which level is your dd? I asked them before and they said it is MOE direction. Anywhere, so long as my ds can cope, I am glad to rest :dancing: But think of it this way, if the kids can't cope, they will have to be responsible and take action right? How I wish all subjects are handled
that way that parents don't need to be involved and can :imanisland:


Hi Zann, my dd is in P4. It wasn't like that for their 1st Investigative Math Test in May. She was allowed to bring back some related worksheets then, & the actual test paper required parents' signature too, hence was a little puzzled over this new arrangement.
