This self-evaluation gives your students the opportunity to reflect on their current behaviors and attitudes and empowers them to make a plan to help correct anything that is hindering their progress in your class! It is beneficial for students to reflect on their own performance and to make plans for corrective action.
This tool is editable, so you can add in behaviors that are unique to your classroom!
This tool is useful for parent meetings! If you have this self-evaluation the child filled out, you can easily use it to guide the parent conversation about a failing or troubled student. It is also useful to use as a starting point for corrective action plans with students. Are they on their cell phone too much? Are they talking to their peers during instruction? Are they being disrespectful? This form is a great place to start with them because it gives them time to process how their behaviors could be impacting their progress in your class. It challenges them to think of behaviors they could improve on, but also requires them to list behaviors or attitudes that are helping them in your class.
This self-evaluation form also has a place for them to list behaviors or attitudes of other students that are affecting their ability to learn. I had no idea how many things I don't see that happen in my classroom until I asked this question. Sometimes, students who aren't doing well in your class are being bullied without your knowledge, being annoyed by another student's behavior that you don't notice, or can't hear you because the person they sit next to listens to their music too loud and you can't hear it. Whatever it is, asking this question at the end gives your students a way to express concerns to you that they wouldn't necessarily tell you on their own.
It is a great tool for the classroom! Use it multiple times a year with your students to help them stop and process their current progress!
