The Exam Wrapper is a tool to facilitate student reflection after an exam and to promote metacognition as students prepare for the next exam. Students complete the exam wrapper (which is a series of reflective questions) after the exam has been taken and a grade has been received in order to create a new study plan. (See image representation of the process below.)
Tools to Consider Using:
- Pencil and paper (in person)
- Convert to a Google Form (in person or online)
- Canvas assignment (in person or online) – quiz or students upload the document
Evaluation: Review students’ plans for change; consider meeting with students who have difficulty identifying effective strategies.
