Quick Tip: Have Students Grade Themselves

More often than not even though teachers are trying to create student centred classrooms, they often fail when it comes to assessment. The teacher is seen as having all the answers and the final word over grades. Try switching things up in your classroom.

Students can evaluate themselves as well as their peers
You can start small, for example, with a quiz. You could have the answers on the board or on a Power Point and have them check their own work. They just have to see if the answer is correct or not. Later on you could move to more open ended questions. You'll find that this is very rewarding for both the students and the teacher. The students are given more responsibility and the teacher has less grading to do.

Got an idea for a quick tip?
