Teach your students to assess their own learning with these self-assessment tools! They are based on Marzano's levels of understanding, and include posters, student use cards, and a student response page.
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 the stoplight colors, Marzano's number scale, and light bulbs. It didn't take me long to realize that I had to make it myself!! This is what I came up with =)
