This semester I have my students in Speech class do a self-assessment (what do they think they will do well on and what do they think are their areas for improvement) before they give a speech. Then they give the speech and do a post-assessment (what do they think they did well on and what do they think were their areas for improvement) . After they give me their pre-post sheet, I give them my assessment. Then I return their pre-post to them so that they can compare their statements and mine. In the next step they pick two areas and write out specifically what they are going to do improve (Not “look up more” but “look up more by (indicating the specific action). During their next speech I look for their indicated improvement.
How do you help your students to improve?
