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.


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.
[/size]Hi 25hrsmama,
according to DS, MOE make changes to this year IM , and students only allowed to go through the paper in class . Reason is to prevent " leaking " to tuition center .
btw, prior to the recent Ca ,teacher only given them one set of practice paper in class but it was not returned either.

Not all children with high IQs are successful, and neither are all those who are 'hopeless' condemned later in life.

There are variety of factors which causes the person to be successful, hardwork, people skills, resources, IQ is just another factor.

The stress should be on all rounded education, like building up the person's self esteem, people's skills, etc.


Absolutely agree. That's what i have been complaining about the last 3 years. Unfortunately, our educational system deems "high IQ" kids = high academic ability. They should "groom" them and bring out their "potential" which may not be academic all the time. Some may be talented in music, art, language only, math only, etc. What to do? Hopefully MOE GEP department can study into this
