Self Assessment and Project Based Learning

This present paper shows how self assessment (SA) is an integral part of project-based learning (PBL). Defined as the involvement of students in identifying standards and/or criteria to apply to their work and making judgments about the extent to which they have met these criteria and standards, SA seeks to support PBL that has been widely accepted as a pedagogical method in which a real-life problem or situation is presented for investigation, analysis, solution, synthesis and evaluation. Students work individually or together in reasonably small sized groups of three to five. The teacher acts as coordinator, facilitator, coach, resource person and fellow learning partner rather than director, instructor, tutor or disseminator of information. A walk through a tried-and-tested PBL project allows educators to appreciate how SA can be incorporated into teaching to enrich the learning experiences of all participants. Implications for improved teaching and learning are discussed.Key words: Self assessment, project-based learning, personal responsibility, student-centred.
