Retake exams: Alloprof does not take vacations

MISE &Agrave ; DAY

As of Monday and until July 31, the Alloprof academic assistance service will offer assistance as well as numerous resources and tools to young Quebecers who have to take exams for recovery.

The Alloprof team will travel to certain schools in the province to offer summer courses and encourage these students.

In addition to its tours, personalized support with qualified teachers is offered on the Alloprof website. Students can get help by chat, text or phone, Monday to Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

In addition, a collaborative space, called the “Zone d'entraide”, is offered seven days a week to give explanations validated by a professional team.

Alloprof believes that it is above all mathematics and science that cause problems for students during summer school.

Worries and motivation

According to the organization, many teachers, parents and students have expressed concern in recent months about the impact of COVID-19 on the expected pace of learning.

“The good news is that the ministerial tests have taken into account the possible delays caused by the pandemic and focus on priority learning, in addition to only counting for 10% or 20% of the student's final mark, “said declared Annie Harvey, columnist at Alloprof, by press release.

Before the pandemic, approximately 20,000 young people were concerned by the summer resumption exams in Quebec.

Alloprof points out that it is difficult to keep students motivated after failure, even more so during the holidays.

“There is a certain embarrassment that can be associated with academic difficulties. We take advantage of this to nurture their confidence, equip them and perhaps even give them a smile,” reassured Ms. Harvey.

In an interview with TVA Nouvelles, she specified that these exam retakes were “ a second chance to do better and to undo any knots that may persist throughout the school career”.
