A note on writing reports
As a tutor it is up to you to encourage a growth mindset in your students. This is the idea that not understanding something is absolutely fine, as a lack of understanding represents an opportunity for learning. Tutors are encouraged to promote the belief that the route to ‘knowing’ something requires perseverance, effort and willingness to get it wrong a few times before attaining that EUREKA moment. As such, this report is intended to compliment that philosophy and to reward effort, diligence and slow and methodological progress. The myth of intelligence as a ‘fixed’ concept is something that we aim to dismantle: intelligence in any field can be learnt. Some students may take longer to grasp the basics, but their conceptual understanding may eventually be deeper once they have understood the rudimentary aspects of a subject
In this respect, the most important part of this report is the Effort Scores. This is the primary indicator of how successful your the student’s tutorials have been. Please reward them accordingly if you have a reward system in place or speak to their parents to get something organised which you both agree on.
In comparison, the Achievement Code is there simply as an overview of your student’s speed of progress. As stated, speed of progress depends on the type of learner and is not a mark of intelligence, but in fact indicates that the student is quick at picking up new information. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to restrain from rewarding your student based on their Achievement code as it reinforces the ides of Intelligence as a fixed concept.
