ADEK have provided a new initiative for each of the students in Grade 3 and Grade 7 in
preparation of an international assessment ADEK require them to sit in the 2018/2019
academic year when they are in Grade 4 and Grade 8. The “Question a Day” (QaD)
initiative focuses on improving students cognitive reasoning skills.
The ADEK QaD initiative requires each student to complete a Maths and Science question each day from Sunday to Thursday. This should be done as a daily homework task and without the help of any adults. The questions should take between 40 seconds to 2 minutes to complete and will become more challenging throughout the week. The school will receive a summary of results each week which informs the school of participation and areas of development for the whole cohort of students to inform future planning.
