Give your students the tools to assess their own learning with these emoji style self-assessment tools! They are based on Marzano's levels of understanding, and include posters, student use cards, and a student response page.
>>>> This product now includes TWO VERSIONS! The only change is the emoji that goes with #3. The first version has a huge grin (that some read as a grimace), and the second is a blushing smile. Choose the one you want, both are complete files. =)
Studies show that students who are partners in their own assessment show increased engagement in all subject areas, and are more likely to become lifelong learners. Also, students who are taught to analyze their own learning show increased motivation to learn.
This means that we need to focus on metacognition in the classroom, or teaching students to think about their thinking! This product will help.
I have used variations on this theme in the past (stoplight colors to show student understanding, and a one through four scale), but I hadn't found a way to really focus my class on the idea of self assessment. I wanted posters, a clearly written rubric, student cards to put on rings, and a half-page assessment tool for students to put in their interactive notebooks. Then, it had to incorporate Marzano's number scale.
