Self-evaluation can be described as assessing one's own performance. Evaluating your capacities and progress makes self-regulating learning much more effective. In addition, self-evaluation can increase the motivation for future learning processes.
The example below places the person in charge of the instruction in the role of the learner. The teacher first of all asks for the opinion of his/her pupils, after which the teacher can carry out self-evaluation.
The Vlaamse Scholierenkoepel has a free and online feedback tool so that every teacher can collect reliable and meaningful feedback from his/her pupils. Participation in the classroom, in order to arrive at the best education together.
Asking pupils to give feedback about the way of teaching is not yet a habit in most schools and is a sensitive issue for a lot of teachers. Nevertheless, feedback can contribute to your professional development as a teacher. Pupils see you at work every day and can help you identify your own strengths and weaknesses. They can indicate what they have gained from your series of lessons and how they have experienced you as a teacher.
The feedback tool is based on international research and our own research, so you know that the feedback you get is reliable.
The feedback tool can be used in the third grade of primary, secondary and higher education.
