Student Self Evaluation

I was working on a self evaluation sheet to give to students, and thought that I might share it here with everyone. The purpose of this sheet is to help students notice different elements in their learning. It's focus is on the 4 macro-skills, grammar, vocabulary, and conversation strategies.
The main parts to the worksheet are as follows:
(i) Orientation: Marks the lesson completed and the grammar focus (you can change the focus if you like).
(ii) New Vocabulary: Gives students a chance to write down new vocabulary items for further study and review.
(iii) Understanding My Learning: Gives a list of learning areas for students to contemplate and give a score on how they feel they went.
(iv) Reflection: Gives students a chance to have an overview, but also plan for future learning.

I have put a link to both pdf and word files. Feel free to alter the document to meet the needs of your classes. I just ask, that you consider leaving a comment to tell me how the sheet worked for you.

The evaluation form gives the scaffolding for reflective learning. Students can use this form to collect data on their feelings toward lesson performance. It also enables them to orientate their learning toward areas they truly have difficulty with, therefore maximizing their learning time. This gives a certain amount of autonomy over learning, as they can use this information to create personalized learning goals.

The data from this form can also be used to create graphical representations that illustrate their learning. Doing this can enhance intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, as students can see their progress clearly...

I encourage you all to create opportunities for students to utilize self-reflection in their lessons...
