"We continued to go over logic games. Her confidence is clearly growing, and her mistakes have shifted mainly to missing details rather than not understanding how to play the game. We focused on sequencing games because she had some questions after her last problem set. We will look over grouping next time."
"Today we did some more logical reasoning practice, and the student did exceptionally well. She missed only one or two questions for every ten. She still struggles to identify conclusions, but she is improving quickly."
"First we worked on a few practice logic games that the student had done. We revisited the importance of recognizing what type of game you have, and appropriate setups for each. Lines for sequencing games, two sets of lines for grouping games, t tables for in/out games, etc. Next we worked on some logical reasoning- the first section we were both very confused about, and couldn't seem to land on correct answers, until we discovered it to be the experimental section of a practice test. I advised her that when doing a practice test, the point is to do the whole thing through and the experimental section is there to make it feel real. If you want to do practice questions, make sure you pick a real section out of a practice test. When we reviewed the practice questions from a real section she was doing much better but is not following the method I taught. Essentially, identify the question type, reason through the stimulus, identify the gap in the reasoning, and hypothesize about what a good answer will look like. Then, and only then, do you look at the answer options. More often than not, you will immediately identify the best answer rather than reading each one over and over."
