Student Strategies for self assessment is my post for Teaching English – British Council.
I’ve posted several “The Best” lists on assessment-related issues over the years, and thought I’d narrow them down a bit and post a small collection.
Here they are:
Q & A Collections: Assessment brings together all my Education Weeks post on the topic.

The Best Rubric Sites (And A Beginning Discussion About Their Use)
