Reflection: Student Ownership Carlos and the Cornfield Day 2 - Section 3: Self-Assessments


     Students knew the performance expectations, so they can elaborate on their weak and strong areas as participants in the Shared Inquiry discussion.  The rubric provided was very specific in areas of conduct, speaking and reasoning, listening, and knowledge of text and preparation.  Students not only rate themselves quantitatively, but also explain qualitatively by elaborating on the descriptions for each scale of the Student Self-Assessment Rubric.

    Videotaping students during the Shared Inquiry discussions also provided evidence for their self-assessments.  Watching their own performance as they rate their progress on the self-assessment prove very effective and accurate.
