Students should be working, thinking, analyzing, creating, etc. throughout the day and guiding a large part of their own learning. Having students create their own assessments ensures that they are held accountable to actively listen during class and that they are thinking at a higher level about what they've learned. In my EDU220, students (in small groups) were asked to create a research-based electronic presentation on a particular piece of legislation and to include an assessment to ensure that their peers could demonstrate mastery of the material by the end of their presentation. Qualitative results: 100% of the students were engaged in either presenting, in taking notes, and by participating in the student-created assessments. I have always included student presentations and note-taking, but this semester I modified the cycle by having the students create their own assessment and reteach if needed based on the peer scores. Student assessments were oustanding and included a variety of technology that I have previously never used! Quantitative results: Difficult to measure since this is only one part of the unit.
