How To Write Better Examinations: Teaching Hacks For Student Learning Habits

Teachers struggle every day to build universally accessible, engaging lesson plans. However, no matter how good the lessons are, the student must still ultimately be responsible for learning the material using their own strategies. This can, naturally, lead to students learning at different rates and possibly even falling behind.

For this problem, however, Elizabeth Jorgensen offers solutions. In her book, "Hacking Student Learning Habits", she presents several tips on how you can be more attentive to your students' individual learning styles, and how you can use those strategies to become a more proactive, encouraging presence in the classroom.

Times 10 Publications hopes that this title will reinvigorate the conversation surrounding the ways in which students engage with course materials. This book seeks to de-emphasize examinations in the classroom and instead help you encourage your students throughout the entire learning process - not just at the end.

This title contains a wide array of tips compiled by Jorgensen to be easily implementable, presented across 9 sections. Each section tackles a different aspect of process-based instruction in order to help you build goal-driven lesson plans where the emphasis is placed on measurable milestones rather than examinations.

Through these methods, Jorgensen lays the foundations of an inventive pedagogical system, in which you will become an active participant in the student journey by helping to target specific misunderstandings. This methodology is intended to ensure that students are not left behind, and will encourage you to provide constructive feedback on assignments and exams rather than through the traditional pass/fail system.

One reviewer said, “This book is a quick read that offers practical ideas on how to work with students to build environments that take the spotlight off outcomes like grades and standardized test scores. Can we help students focus more on the 1000s of choices they are making every day instead of their g.p.a? Yes we can.”
