Promoting Self-Assessment in the Classroom Through Reflection

Sun, Nov 14, 11:25-11:50 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 15

Providing feedback is essential for teaching. However, we wanted to make the classroom more student-centred by allowing students opportunities for self-correction through activities that encourage output from them. Students were asked to reflect on their performance in mid-term and final speaking tests before being given feedback from us in order to provide an opportunity for them to identify their own strengths and weaknesses. We look at the benefits and limitations of this reflective process.
