An alternative assessment of values - giving students a voice through self- and peer- assessment

Values define a person’,s character and shape the beliefs, attitudes and actions. Thus they form the core in preparing our pupils for life and work in the 21st century.Typically, students’, values are assessed by teachers based on rubrics. Biasness is present as there is only one assessment source. Thus, this alternative Value Assessment Model aims to assess our pupil’,s values objectively. The pupils self-assess and are assessed by their peers and teachers based on observable behavioural traits.The data collected from the three sources were analysed and the results were used for both summative and formative purposes. For summative purpose, the school used the results to identity Edusave Character Award (ECHA) recipients and potential Student Leader, determine Conduct grade and ascertain Personal Qualities level. At the same time, it was used as one of Civic and Moral Education (CME) grading criteria. For formative purpose, the school used the results to identify pupils who had low scores to attend Self-Mastery for Success Workshops.The school has implemented this alternative Value Assessment Model for 2 years. Feedback from teachers was positive. The self- and peer-assessment results were similar to teacher-assessment results, especially for those who had high or low scores.KEYWORDS:Self-assessment, Peer-assessment, Value Assessment Model, Alternative Assessment
