Question Detail

The use of assessment as a learning tool.

My name is Francesca Oller and I am currently studying a degree in Primary Education (minor in English) at the University of Vic.
Next year will be my last year and I have to do a Final Grade Work; I've chosen "The assessment as a learning process" and now I'm reviewing literature about that, but I also want first-hand information.
So, I'm wondering if somebody would be willing to be interviewed to talk about the active role of students in their own process of assessment and about the use of assessment as a learning tool.
I really believe that learners know what they know and know what they don’t know. Therefore learners can be aware of the importance of self-assessment in order to know what to improve and what they can achieve. But I want to contrast my hypothesis with experts like you.
Moreover, I read that enhancing motivation is one of the keys that can bring the success in primary; do you think we (primary teachers) can also do that through assessment?
