We were exploring how to make metacognitive thinking more visible for our students, keeping it aligned with our mandate to keep thinking and learning visible, transparent, tangible, critiqueable and accountable within learning spaces.

Self-Assessment Inspires Learning

Self-Assessment Inspires Learning | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"Self-reflection is self-assessment, and one of the most significant learning tools we can model for our students. Ultimately, we want our children and adolescents to be the self-assessors of their work, dispositions, and goals. Research repeatedly reports that the difference between good teachers and superior teachers is that superior teachers self-reflect."

We ask our students to reflect on their work, but do we ask them to reflect on their social and emotional development? This post from Edutopia looks at the importance of self-reflection in these areas.

The author discusses how the brain is wired to do self-assessment, stating:

'When we teach to a child's or adolescent's brain, we empower that student with the "inner resources" that directly affect his or her ability to pay attention, engage, and create meaningful learning experiences. School culture is simply about relationships, and the brain is relational organ designed to survive, think, and feel.'

She has also uploaded three great documents that you may print out and use with your students. These documents are:

* Self-Assessment Rubric for Social and Emotional Development

* Social and Emotional Development Daily Goals

* Social and Emotional Development Questions for Reflection

Working with social and emotional development as an avenue for self-reflection may be new to you, but to help our students gain this ability to self-assess make create changes in the classroom that lead to students feeling safer.

David Baker's curator insight, August 24, 2014 8:08 PM

The tools to help teachers and students to reflect on their work is impressive. I appreciated the downloadable rubric and questions. I see this as a source text for a graduate seminar. Helping students to develop the ability to self-assess will allow them to grow just as teachers grow and excel from reflection.

"Education is all about the numbers these days. My personal preference is just the opposite.

I have this fantasy where I toss grades in the garbage. In this dream, I let everyone redo things and have conferences to discuss improvement."

As teachers must is expected from us daily and more and more we are asked to do assessments. Many of us think of testing as soon as we hear assessment. This post discusses assessment stating "assessment isn’t always employed correctly. It sometimes gets over, under, or misused. Assessment should work seamlessly into the classroom routine. The traditional test can be intrusive and stressful. True assessment flows into the lessons and gives a constant pulse on student learning."

The author then provides links to five Learnist boards that focus on assessment, specifically:

* Simple Ways to Monitor Student Progress

* Assessment

* Exemplar Rubrics for Assessment

* Socrative Response Systems

* Metryx

The first three boards have seven to ten resources. The last two links are on a board that is called 21st Century Assessment - Digital Documentation and additional resources are also found here.

"Education is all about the numbers these days. My personal preference is just the opposite." This is an interesting line. What makes it necessary to measure only with numbers?

I set up an account and built a 21st Century Skills Collaboration rubric based on Common Core in less than a minute. Very clever. You can combine standards from different tracks and them share via web address or social media or download. 


This product delivers.  Give it a try.

A new infographic from An Ethical Island with a focus on rubrics provides an explanation as well as a section on:
* Why Use Rubrics? What can it improve?

* How to Use Rubrics? A guide for teachers.

Rubrics help students understand the expectations. This post provides information that may help you create rubrics that help students improve their ability to meet the requirements.
