Week 4 Assignment  

Self-Assessments

Self-assessments are crucial in helping students to monitor their own academic progress and helping guide ownership of learning. As students are working through their self-assessments, the teacher can continuously engage students in their own progress and then adjust instruction in response to meet their learning needs. Along with the self-assessment, students need to know how they will be graded and how to monitor their progress, which is done through a rubric. A rubric is an assessment tool that provides student’s with clear expectations for their deliverable. The rubric scaffolds to show a clear distinction between categories in order to achieve the target learning goals for the student’s assignment deliverable.
