Pupils working together

Self-assessment &

  • Improve meta-cognitive skills.
  • Enhance self-regulation

Enabled by e-Assessment

Whether our online Maths Assessment system is used for formative assessment, summative assessment, maths homework, intervention work or maths matery, it provides an instant means by which children can self-assess their work, or if in groups, peer-assess their work together.

Once online answers have been checked and submitted, pupils are automatically presented with their marked answers complete with any corrections. They can then independently self-assess their work by checking any incorrect answers, trying to find where they went wrong, and if it was simply a mistake or a misconception.

Meta-cognitive Skills

Before requesting help from the teacher, pupils are encouraged to try and experiment with different strategies to see if they can reach the correct answer and to repeat this strategy with new questions to check its validity. These strategies could include using concrete material, drawing pictures, writing number sentenses or peer-assessment via discussion.

This is the core principal of meta-cognition, or "learning to learn", which can have a significant impact on pupil progress (see The Sutton Trust - EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit).

Self and peer-assessment also promote self-regulation, whereby pupils are encouraged to manage their own motivation towards learning, to experiment and to try again.
