THE TRAFFIC LIGHT STRATEGY
Excerpt from the free E-book Teaching Neurodiverse Students in your Busy and Complex Classroom by Sue Larkey
My favourite technique for class work tasks and exams is “The Traffic Light Strategy” This allows students to visually differentiate their own work based on difficulty.
Here is how I explain it to students:
“In a test/exam or class work it is best you start with the easy questions. Sometimes those questions are in the middle or the page, or sometimes they are at the end. You don’t have to do the work in order, start with what you “can do” as this helps your brain get ready to have a go at more difficult questions. If you start with the hard questions your brainstarts to “freeze,” “worry,” or even “panic” so then you feel like you can’t do the work. So if you use the traffic light system you can actually sometimes do questions you thought you didn’t know how to do. So start with green/go, then do yellow/caution and then red/have a go even though hard.”
Read through the exam and mark each question:
- Red mark: I don’t know where to start with this question
- Orange mark: I’m not sure about this question, but I can attempt it
- Green mark: I know how to answer this
Start with answering the questions marked green, then orange THEN red.
