Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

I recently came across the article "Learning Self-Evaluation: Challenges for Students" by Jean MacGregor in the journal New Directions for Teaching and Learning (56). I wanted to share with you some of the points she makes.

Some of the challenges students may face when they are asked to self-evaluate and reflect on themselves as learners, especially for the first time, include:

Given these and other challenges, MacGregor makes the following suggestions for those interested in fostering reflection and self-evaluation on the part of their students:

Of course she elaborates on each of these points in her article; I encourage you to take a look. The entire article is available as a pdf on the ACTL moodle site:

In the meantime, I hope the term finishes well for you!
