Do you think self-assessment can be implemented in the language

classroom?

Yes, of course, as a matter of fact, self-assessment can be a powerful drive to guide
students into metacognition. It is well known that the most successful learners are
usually those who do self-monitoring, self-assessment, and they always reflect on their
own learning skills. Helping students to practice self-assessment is one of the most
valuable skills we could ever teach them, because it is a way of helping them maintain
their intrinsic motivation (the only type of motivation that is powerful enough to move
students to really acquire a new language)

Atte. Rossana.

Make a list of the advantages and disadvantages of using self
assessment in the classroom.
Advantages:
• Students can learn how to do self-assessment.
• They can practice a level of metacognition.
• Some problems can be detected if the results do not match our teachers’
assessment.
• A stronger motivation can be the result of self-assessment.
• Help students become responsible for their learning.
• Give autonomy to students.
• Give them an opportunity to look at themselves as mature learners.
• Self-assessment can be a tool to evaluate our teaching process as well.

Disadvantages.
• It consumes time out of the scheduled classes.
• Not all students are mature enough to be sincere when they do self-assessment.
• Students are not familiar with this technique they might not feel comfortable.
