Best Practices in Student Self-Assessment


Students learning self-regulation strategies may not always recognize   how those skills can be developed across content areas. Teachers can   assist these students by providing them guidance on how to expand   their skills. It is also helpful when teachers establish common   processes that provide students with the feedback they need to assess   their personal efforts and outcomes.

For this assignment, take on the role of an elementary level teacher   at a K-5 school. Your principal has noticed how well you communicate   learning objectives, guide students to set individual goals, and guide   students to self-regulate and track their progress across multiple   content areas. Because of your successes using these best practices,   your principal has asked you to present best practices to fellow   teachers across all content areas in an upcoming professional development.

Part 1: Best Practices Presentation

Create a 10-12 slide digital presentation  to present to your   teacher colleagues describing evidence-based instructional practices   related to the self-regulation cycle, including goal setting,   communicating learning objectives, monitoring student progress,   providing effective feedback, and promoting self-regulation across   multiple content areas.

The presentation should include the following components:

  • How to communicate the unit or lesson learning objectives to     students, and how they will be measured on their performance of     those objectives
  • How  to encourage students’     motivation and engagement through the use of technology and other     strategies, creating opportunities for students’ active     participation in learning, self-motivation, and positive social   interaction
  • How to continuously monitor student progress to     provide effective, descriptive feedback across multiple content   areas
  • How to work with students to collaboratively establish     learning goals, identify quality work, and analyze their assessment     results across multiple content areas.
  • Title slide,     reference slide, and presenter’s notes.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment,   solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and   references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines,   which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student   Success Center.

Part 2: Reflection

In 250-500 words, summarize and examine the process of implementing   best practices in encouraging self-regulation, setting goals,   communicating objectives, monitoring progress, and providing effective feedback.

Consider the following questions:

  • How  can you use students’ performance data to     guide and engage students in thinking and learning?
  • How     does the assessment data inform future instructional planning based     on identified learning gaps and patterns?
  • How  does     planning for students to engage in the self-regulation cycle     influence students’ confidence in learning independently and     taking ownership of their academic progress?

Support your findings with 2-3 scholarly resources.

Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the   Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
