What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Program of Results Enhancement - Strap Phrase


Whatever exercises a student engages in, the outcome is the measure of that student’s success or failure. In a student’s life, there are short term results such as those that are obtained via examination of skill or competence and long term results that are not immediately apparent but are the outcomes of making good choices and obtaining good results based on those choices when the student is young.


In the present day, when most of us reflect back on how we suffered to obtain short term results in exams and then go on to never use them ever again, we must, as rational human beings, wonder whether the entire process was worth the effort.


Well, we all know that no effort is completely wasted but we also know that these efforts can be made to optimize impacts or, ensure what is known as result-efficiency. This is a measure of how far-reaching into the future a specific result in an examination or test or challenge really is and it is not that easy to measure in the short term.


In the short term, what can be done by a student is to carefully select the optimal mix of a) the student’s innate talents and capabilities, b) mainstream education milestones, and, c) general trends in skill importance for a changing world.


Obviously, this is not easy. The very facts that so many wrong mix-choices are made are attested to by the fact mentioned earlier about the general doubt of usefulness of common educational results.


The Steiner educators put in enormous effort to help each child find that mix of choices and in this, we are governed by the rule that education should be for vocation and not simply for an education. That is, education is not viewed by us as an end but rather, as a means to an end. That end is neither acing the IGCSE nor obtaining 9 A’s at the ordinary level. Those are simply collateral outcomes.  What Steiner does is ensure that any level of mainstream academic achievement will give each child the best opportunity to be a rounded out, well-adjusted student still to face greater learning challenges. As a very basic example, a child might have strong language skills, weak analytical skills and good aesthetic skills. In that event, expecting the child to become an engineer or lawyer will only condemn the child to years of frustration.  However, channeling the child’s innate abilities into creative writing, enabling superior showing in language and art related exams and good results in math and science, providing special high-level instruction in honing writing skills etc. will lay the foundation for the child to go on to higher education that will position him or her to capitalize and optimize on what has been learned at this level.


Towards this, the Steiner educators use a Systematic Analytical Framework (SAF) to provide the child with the best tools to face exams to optimize results and move on to using those results continuously and with complete relevance throughout life.


How does it work?

STEP 1 - EVALUATE OR RE-EVALUATE: The SCANLab conducts evaluation exercises. The aim here is to get as clear and unambiguous an idea as possible of each child’s strengths and weaknesses as well as issues and factors that can threaten the child’s learning curve and finally the opportunities based on specific skills that each child can capitalize on..


STEP 2 - DETERMINE BEST CHOICE MIX: The LEARNlab creates an individualized mix of choices based on the SCANlab evaluation and SWOT.


STEP 3  - MENTOR STUDENTS ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS: Steiner learners are generally capable of managing their vision, goals, direction etc. without too much interference on our part or that of their parents. However, in quite a few instances, there requires a tripartite engagement to ensure that the proper guidance and direction is given to students facing their first academic challenges and the LEARNlab assigns mentors to those who need them.

STEP 4 - MOTIVATE STUDENTS: The LEARNlab works with the child to enhance ownership of the learning process and kindles enthusiasm for the choice mix that has been selected. The idea is simple: An interested child will perform far better with less effort than one whose heart is not in the learning program. .


STEP 5 - APPLY TECHNIQUES FOR RESULT ENHANCEMENT:  The key areas that will be focused on are neutralizing threats and reducing the result impact of weaknesses. For this purpose, Steiner provides some kids who have weaknesses with specific tricks, exam techniques, memory enhancement methods, time management etc.  that will reduce issues. For children who show ability in specific areas, the aim is to optimize those skills and to ensure high level examination performance.


STEP 6 - MONITOR BUIILD UP TO EXAMS:   When students are preparing for examinations, they are assailed with many challenges. Managing time among various subjects, managing stress, maintaining motivation and maintaining discipline are a few. Whether the engagement with the student is short or long term, Steiner educators are constantly aware of the intermix of activity and emotion related issues and watch over the students and respond quickly to the slightest indication that all is not well. This type of personalized engagement of all of the students is aimed at one thing: building confidence and maintaining it at the highest possible level right up to the point where walk out of an exam hall after having sat their exams.
