“Die oom se kursus” …

Vra Prof. Albert Weideman vir ‘n leerder van Montana:

“Nou hoe beland jy hier op die Oos-Moot Hoërskool se Akademiese geletterdheidswerkswinkel?”

Oom, my niggie sê al haar maats het destyds beter as sy gevaar op die NBT-toetse. Toe sy vra nou hoekom verskil die punte so, het haar maats gesê dis oor hulle daai oom se werkswinkel bygewoon het. So my niggie se raad was: vind die oom, en woon sy kursus by! Dis hoekom ek nou hier is. 🙂

Ons vertrou dat dit goed sal gaan met vanjaar se AKG-toets. Sterkte!

The book really helped and showed how they [the NBTs] would ask questions, so I knew what to expect, especially after doing all five of the tests. I think that everyone should do some work to prepare as it is a test unlike any normal test at school.

Your book helped a lot – it gave me a lot of confidence. The AQL paper went well yesterday …  I’ll be sure to recommend it to other students.

Slim Lindeniete nou nog slimmer

‘n Klompie vriendelike matrieks het vandag in die saal van die Hoërskool Linden vergader om voor te berei vir die akademiese en kwantitatiewe geletterdheidskomponent van die Nasionale Normtoetse. Hierdie toetse, beter bekend as die NBT’s of National Benchmark Tests, word toenemend deel van universiteitstoelatingsveresistes. En Lindeniete vat nie kanse nie — as so ‘n toets geskryf moet word, wil hulle weet wat om te verwag. Dit was ‘n kwessie van: “Wys ons die hekkie en ons spring oor hom”.

NBT AQL preparation: yes or no?

Can you prepare?

Can or should you prepare for the Academic and Quantitative Literacy (AQL) component of the National Benchmark Tests? Of course you can. Why would you not prepare? Why would you not seek to become familiar with the unusual format of such tests? Why would you not grasp the opportunity to gain an understanding of what academic literacy means? If you do an example test and check the correct answers, you will certainly develop your ability to use academic language. And that ability is exactly what the AQL component tests!
