Student Reflection: A tool for Self-assessment? (PP73), Paper
Assessment experts believe that assessment tools should not only be used to measure and report students’ learning but to promote and help them progress in their learning.
The presentation aims at understanding the purpose of ESL/EFL students’ self-reflection. It raises several points for discussion: should reflection be guided? What benefits can it bring to the assessment of a course/ program? Can subjectivity be controlled? The study compares students’ opinions with teachers’ opinions.
