Quick Tip: Have Students Create Assessments

With the push towards more student centred classrooms comes the push towards student created assessment. While some teachers think that students will give themselves straight As, this couldn't be further from the truth. Of course you will have some students like that, but many of them will be tougher on themselves and their fellow students than you will be.

The next time a paper or project has to be graded, try creating a rubric as a class. It's a good way to get input from students and see what they think is important. You can help them out if necessary. When time comes for grading, have them grade their own work or another student's. It allows students to become more autonomous and take more responsibility for their learning.
