RIQ stands for recall, insights, and question. RIQ may be used at different stages of the teaching cycle but it is usually used at the end of a lesson when teachers can use RIQ to encourage student reflection and monitoring of learning. For example they may ask students to recall three things from the lesson, write down two insights or ideas received during the lesson and write one question that they still have. Students can share what they have written with a partner. It may also be used at the start of a session to link to prior learning.

RIQ encourages students to be independent in reflecting on what they learn and how they learn. It helps students to be accountable for their own learning. It also provides the teacher with valuable information on student learning and any gaps that may need to be addressed.
