Self-evaluation can be described as assessing one's own performance. Together with the concept of 'causal attribution' it forms the self-assessment of the pupils about what has or has not been successful. Evaluating your capacities and progress makes self-regulating learning more effective. In addition, self-evaluation can boost your motivation and your motivation for future learning processes.
In the pictures below the students evaluate themselves after a listening test. The teacher asks first and foremost how the assignment went, by means of smileys. Next, several questions are asked with the focus on the reason why the assignment went well or not. In these questions they express their approach, attitude, relationships, vocabulary, concepts and self-reliance. Then they have to formulate this in things they already do well and things they can do better.
The example below is used in the third grade of primary education. A similar way of working can be used in both longer primary and secondary education.
