Student self-assessment

In this Professional Learning module, the term 'student self-assessment' is used as an umbrella term which encompasses:

  • student self-assessment
  • student self-evaluation; and
  • student self-regulation or self-monitoring.

In other words, the focus is on the ability of the students to:

  • understand both learning intentions and success criteria
  • use these criteria to judge what they have learnt and what they still need to learn
  • reflect on the learning process to ascertain how they learn best
  • act on feedback received from their teacher and their peers
  • set learning targets based on what they still need to learn
  • manage the organisation of their learning.
