Self-assessment stands for the assessment of pupils about what has or has not been successful. The term 'self-assessment' contains two parts: causal attribution and self-assessment. Causal attributions are the reasons you find for success or failure. They influence pupils' emotions, their motivation to learn and their choice of tasks.
The picture below illustrates the report of a Brussels school. At the end of the report, the teacher asks both pupils and parents to evaluate the pupil:
*What do you think of my report?;
*TIPs for myself;
*What do my parents think of my report?;
*My child's TOPs;
*The TIPs to my child.
The example below is used in the third grade of primary education. In the first degree the evaluation is done by smileys.
