Student Reflection and Goal Setting

Here is where we are in the teaching-assessment cycle and the assessment literacy attributes that are to be covered.

We learned in Unit 5 that assessment-literate educators involve students in the assessment process as an essential part of balanced assessment. When students become partners in the learning process, they become owners of their learning and gain a better sense of themselves as readers, writers, and thinkers. When students reflect on what they have learned and on how they learn, they can adjust their learning tactics and develop their own learning goals to become more effective learners. In this section, we examine setting, followed by a sample activity where students analyze their work alongside a rubric to set goals for improvement.
