Student Self-Assessment as an Avenue for Learning

Throughout the past two years, standards-based grading has become a focus of assessment and learning in my classroom. There is a shift that takes place in mindset which then changes assessment practices in the classroom. As part of this shift, it became apparent that student reflection on learning was important. Using student self-assessment provided additional data to indicate areas of strength and areas of growth for my students. Come explore the standards-based mindset and how student self-assessment can communicate learning in the classroom in meaningful ways, both for the student and the teacher.
