Create a student-accessible rubric for self-assessments

Create a student-accessible rubric for self-assessments

(12)
Our nursing and OTA staff are using self-assessments to help students evaluate their confidence in the skills they are learning for certification. The idea is that they can take this assessment and choose if they want to share it, see what things they need to brush up on and reflect on their experiences. Currently they are doing this on paper but as we go to more online course work, they would like to integrate this as an online activity within a course.

The peer review rubric as it is set up now would work, but we also like the model of the tests you take on social media that tell you that you're 90% geek!

I would love to see this. A setting where they force students to self-evaluate and read the rubric before they submit. They could also be required to list examples of why their work merits a certain rating in each criteria--much like teacher comments, only a little more visible (not a hidden click--just have the text entry box there). They could also highlight passages of text or hot spots in their submission or time markers to provide examples. I would like a checklist feature too--something they have to review and locate before they can submit.

Great idea! I would LOVE for students to be able to self-assess on Canvas

I would love to see the addition of a self-evaluation/ self review rubric. The addition would help facilitate the process of students critically viewing their own work. Great idea!

For four years people have been asking for this feature, explaining how it would add value to teaching & learning, alluding to educational best practices, etc and we're only to this idea being listed as Open for Conversation?  Yes, it's a step up from us all having the conversation by ourselves; at least we can hope that Instructure may be listening to some degree now but this, this is very aggravating.

There is already a way to create rubrics, lots of rubrics.  There are tons of options within those rubrics for whether or not the items are for a grade, for Learning Mastery, tied to a specific Outcome.  Why can't the rubric functionality be altered to allow for self-assessment?  Beyond that how great would it be if we could require students to complete a self-assessment as a step immediately before submitting their uploaded files?

Many of us encourage our students to take a look at the rubric before submitting, many have stated that they would print out the rubric and provide a hardcopy for the students to use.  In the current age of so much happening online, there should be some effort to facilitate more useful functionality to occur within our LMS so we don't need to ask our students to be printing out the rubrics at home to then upload again when it's time to submit their assignment.  These extra steps require greater time, effort, and equipment for our students and can be obstacles to their progress.

Love this idea. This would be so helpful for students.

Yes please!

This is absolutely a necessity for Canvas to add! 

As noted in a related thread that has been archived the research is clear. Students assessing their own work to help determine how to improve is essential.

This feature really needs to be added.  It has come up in multiple threads and been here for 4 years with some traction.  Please implement this feature.

Is there any status update to this? Four years is a long time to wait.

Really, really need the students to be able to self assess. They have been on elearning so long now and their work continues to go down hill. Would love for them to be able to complete a rubric right there in their assignment box before they submit their work. We need them to be doing more high quality work and if they could see what they were missing before they turned it in, it would be easy for the quality to improve.
