Student-Centered Assessment Guide: Self-Assessment

By George Brooke and Heidi Andrade
April 23, 2013

Developed by the Students at the Center Team to illustrate the practical application of the research described in their Assessing Learning paper, this guide summarizes self-assessment as a student-centered assessment practice. The guide provides a clear definition and steps for implementing self-assessment effectively in the classroom. It looks specifically at the use of rubrics and checklists and provides examples of each.

Self-assessment is simply a matter of having students identify strengths and weaknesses in their own work and revise accordingly. Effective self-assessment involves students comparing their work to clear standards and generating feedback for themselves about where they need to make improvements. This simple guide can help any teacher begin implementing this practice in their classroom.
