I enjoyed reading this article about self and peer assessment. It not only gave me a deeper insight to understanding this effective form of assessment, but it also allowed me to develop my teaching methods so I could incorporate this into assessing my students’ skills in their assessment of their own work and that of others. The article also explains how vital it is for students to develop their own critical and creative thinking about the work they produce in the classroom and also shows how important it is for students to take responsibility for their own learning.
Here’s a link to the article. Enjoy!
