Involving students in assessment conversations
For students to be actively engaged in their own learning journey, they need to know what they are learning, why they are learning it, how to learn it, how well they are learning it, and how to take the next steps to advance their learning. These are the skills of lifelong learners that can positively contribute to their performance now and into the future. This process however is more easily said than done. Understanding some of the factors involved in supporting students to develop these skills is a start.
