Product Description
This student self-assessment sheet is meant for students to use as a tool to better understand and monitor their own academic discussions with respect to grammar, vocabulary, preparation, supporting details, tone/diction, and consideration for audience.

This student self-assessment sheet is especially helpful as students learn to engage in and sustain meaningful round-table discussions in response to an assigned reading, video segment, or other prompt. It is effective with whole-class discussions as well.

The key to the effectiveness of this self-assessment is the recalibration that naturally occurs when the student compares his or her self-assessed score with that given by the teacher afterward.

I have students fill out the self-assessment sheet on Fridays. Students receive back their sheets on Mondays, and they compare their self-assessment with my assessment of their discussion skills. Students then use their returned sheets as guides during the second week, and so on.

I have used this student self-assessment sheet for about 12 years, and each year the improvement in students' discussion skills was so dramatic and internalized that it improved their writing skills, too!
