Self-assessments give students the opportunity to consciously reflect on their strengths and weaknesses. Also for the teachers, the collected anonymous results of the self-assessment provide valuable additional information which can be integrated into the lesson/course. This gives the teacher a clearer picture of the students’ overall learning progress.
Use multiple choice questions and make sure that only one answer can be selected (“Multiple Choice” disabled). Important: make sure that the “Show results immediately” setting is deactivated so that students do not influence each other.
- Students reflect on the material presented.
- Teachers receive an assessment of the learning status of their students.
