Having students monitor their progress throughout the year is an important tool to forming lifelong learners. With the student-led forms found here, not only do they reflect on prior experiences, but several times throughout the year. The language used does not indicate that a certain letter grade is best, rather allows students the opportunity to be excited as they grow throughout the year. It also allows students to continually re-evaluate their progress and if their goals are S.M.A.R.T., so they can grow in independence as well. I find this to be a great starting point to individual discussions I have with students!
