Current study guides employ a basic approach to evaluating student performance. This is displayed in the two-step flow chart below:
Although the above approach to learning has been used for many years, it has flaws that may compromise student performance. VCEWeb, to solve this problem, has designed a system of learning which aims to maximise student understanding! The flow chart below, which is categorised into distinct 'phases', demonstrates this:
Evidently, VCEWeb solves two issues:
1. Aesthetic hand-written solutions have replaced traditional 'typed-up' model responses. The purpose of using hand-written solutions is to teach students how to write responses to questions - something that unfortunately cannot be effectively taught with typed solutions.
2. Adding an extra step, 'Phase 3', which refers to the 'Extension Notes' component of our study guides. This phase aims to teach students how to logically process questions - reading solutions may be enough to learn content, but being able to understand how a solution is derived through extension comments can further consolidate student knowledge and understanding. Extension notes are scattered throughout our guides and contain common tricks that students may encounter in examinations, writing tips and visual diagrams which break break down difficult concepts.
