    Red face CAN ANY ONE CHECK MY ANSWERS

    Hi
    Ok I have done the quiz 3 times now and I should have got the answer by now but I keep getting “Sorry, you didn't achieve the 75% required to move onto the tutor marked assessment.” I did my own answers then I asked some people I know for the second attempt and finally decided to try some on line help for my 3rd.

    Asked i-to-i for help but its bank holiday weekend so no help there (but I never get help from i-to-i anyway) I know got some answers right and some wrong but I can’t see which ones.

    If it is ok I will cut and paste the questions and my answers here and hopefully like the tooth fairy I will find that someone will only show me the correct answers as I want to find the incorrect ones myself (also I hope that shows I don’t want to cheat)

    True. My answers for three of the questions are different from yours, but that's my work, not yours. This is your assignment. You need to work with it on your own. Sorry, and good luck. You can do it.

    Question 8c’. It asks for “a quick and simple technique which immediately encouraged the students to self-correct”. You have to assume that the teacher has explained his actions already. The answer is ‘c’.
    “drawing a timeline on the board and showing where the events are on the timeline” is not quick and simple, and does not encourage a student to self-correct. It is wasting time teaching them something that the question says they already know.
    Question 9. Possibly ‘c’.
    Question 10. a’ ‘Think again’ is a rather broad task to ask a student to do, especially if they have made a pronunication mistake and “Pronunciation” is one of the answers.
    Question 11. Possibly ‘c’.
    Question 12.a’. They need to know what class to place her in, so they do a placement test. Note, the question says “the school”. When she is assigned a class, the teacher might do a ‘diagnostic test’ to see what she specifically needs to be worked on.
    Question 14. Possibly ‘a
    Question 15. Possibly ‘a

    In any event you have 8,10,12 wrong. That makes 80%. So, one of the other of my answers must be right too.

    ERM!!! sorry but i did the quiz 3 times so i have defiantly worked on it. as for on my own sorry but i need to ask people if they think the answers are correct or incorrect. also that is one of the useful functions of this site to work hard and get some one to check your work. (also read my part about not cheating)

    as for your work i have no interest in the answers to your work as my question relates to my work and i asked for some one to look at my work and see where i went wrong

    This is constructive criticism not an angry out lash

    thank you

    hi i did the test with your and my answers and i got this again:

    Sorry, you didn't achieve the 75% required to move onto the tutor marked assessment. Please have another go by clicking 'Start again', or if you're still unsure about what you have learnt, take another look at the learning module.

    this is why i hate i-to-i

    thanks for your effort any way
