A. Assessing the Plan of Action Your response should address the following areas, if possible: 1. Recapitulate what you had set out to achieve through your Plan of Action. Restate the problem and the goals(s), objectives, and strategies that you used. 2. Did you choose an appropriate goal for your Constructive Action? Was your goal realistic? Was it well focused? Significant? Was it too ambitious or not ambitious enough? 3. Identify changes, if any, you made in the Plan of Action and explain why they were necessary. 4. Report results for each objective. Create a chart describing what worked and what did not work and why. 5. Describe the problems you experienced and explain how they affected the outcome and why you could not anticipate them. 6. Use your evaluation plan to assess the degree to which you attained your goal. Identify and use appropriate mathematical skills
Rick VanDeWeghe writes of modeling: "teachers show how they go about the processes of reading and writing-drawing students' attention to the ways readers and writers think and the real decisions they make, especially when they themselves are challenged." In her book Conversations , Regie Routman explains why this modeling process is so successful: "It has always been our job to teach directly and explicitly in response to students' needs-carefully demonstrating, specifically showing how, clearly explaining. Whatever we want our students to do well, we first have to show them how. Of all the changes I have made in my teaching, adding explicit demonstration to everything I teach has been the single most important factor in increasing students' literacy" (24).
Update 7/16/15: if you do choose to cancel your score, then you no longer have to worry about the dreaded "C" showing up on your score report: the GMAT has discontinued this policy. You will also be allowed to retake the test after a 16-day time period, and you can take the GMAT up to five times per year.
You can now use the "Score Preview Feature" to see your GMAT scores before deciding whether to report them or cancel them, which means that you can take the GMAT as many times as needed, without worrying about your lower scores being visible to anyone but you. Business schools will now only see the scores you want them to see, which removes the fear of failure and thus takes away some of the pressure. In addition, cancelled scores can be reinstated.

Don’t forget that the test itself costs $250. There are fee waivers available for those who qualify, and you can now cancel your score without your schools knowing, but unfortunately, in most cases there is no way around having to pay the GMAC an arm and a leg to take this test, which is why you want to be prepared the first time you take it.
