findings from trials at bssc
Findings from trials at BSSC
  • Fast students go faster
  • They attempt extension questions
  • Slower students can rewind and catch up
  • Illness, sport, camps not such a problem
  • Can integrate prac work continuously
  • VCE results at least as good as traditional class.
