Self-assessment is a crucial part of learning! Great learners are able to accurately evaluate their learning, identify their weaknesses, and work to improve and fill gaps in their knowledge.
The Progress Sheet is a customizable document that can be used during any unit - for the entire unit. It is designed to help students develop their self-assessment skills. It is simple, quick, and effective! Students use pencils to fill out the sheet at various checkpoints during the unit. The students' rating can, and should, change over time, just like their understanding changes throughout the unit. Click on "Preview" for a sample Progress Sheet for a Cell Unit.
The Progress Sheet also doubles as a powerful, quick, and easy formative assessment tool. Teachers can circulate while students are filling this out and easily identify students who need extra help and those who can serve as experts. They can also be collected, carefully evaluated, and compared to graded assessments.
Progress sheets are also helpful to parents and guardians who want to talk to their children about what they are learning or help them study.
When students use Progress Sheets regularly, they become pros at assessing their own learning! They become increasingly honest and proactive in seeking ways to improve their own learning.
