Self-Assessment Scale for Student Reflection

A great way for students to reflect and self-evaluate how they are doing in their own learning.  Here are a few ways you can use it:

  • Photocopy and cut one scale per student.  Give it to them at the beginning of a lesson.  Give them red, yellow and green crayons/colored pencils.  About 1/3 through the lesson, have students self-evaluate where they feel they fall on the scale with the red crayon by circling where they feel they are.  About 2/3 through the lesson, have them do the same with the yellow.  At the end of the lesson, have them do the same with green.  
  • Photocopy and laminate a class set of self-assessment scales.  Have whiteboard markers ready for students to use.  As students are doing a self-guided portion of the lesson, have them self-evaluate where they feel they fall on the scale and leave it at the edge of their desk.  This way, you can more easily see which students require re-teaching, etc.
  • Put the image of the self-assessment scale on students’ notes/vocab at the start of the unit.  As you progress, encourage students to write the date/time of when they reached each phase.
