The Three P’s of Performance


This workshop explores the findings of a school-based peer research project on the key obstacles to optimal performance in high-stakes assessment like the Year 12 VCAA Maths Methods Exams. Using observation, student work samples, interviews and written reflections, the project identified three broad obstacles: panic, poor preparation and poor practice. The project also trialled approaches for reducing these obstacles, focussing particularly on practising careful, systematic and precise mathematical working and on developing strategies for dealing with exam anxiety.
