Self Assessment

The skill of self-assessment is a basic skill, as it is a modern strategy, which helps students to self-awareness and assumes the educational responsibility for what they learn. Teachers are trained to provide learners with all that is needed for their learning. It is also one of the functional skills in life, that every person must know; to be able to develop himself, and to know his strengths and weaknesses. The student begins the self-assessment exercise from the kindergarten stage with the teacher-led incremental plan and then the student-teacher participation until he reaches the eleventh grade of individual self-assessment, which includes developing the self-development plan, in accordance with the student’s abilities, performance, potential, and the determinants of that performance.
