Abstract:

As educators search exhaustively for ways to make students more active and engaged in their own learning, self-assessment has emerged as a possible solution. In addition to enhancing student autonomy, agency, and metacognitive awareness of learning, it is a way to encourage critical thinking and responsibility—two major tenets of Active Learning, and traits that will serve students well in their lives after graduation. This talk will aim to conceptualize the effectiveness of self-assessment within the greater context of the English medium liberal arts university in East Asia, and present a practical approach to student assessment by examining data from CLIL-based classrooms.
