Besides of having student take part in a peer review session or giving them instructor feedback, you can also choose to let students review their own work or skillset. Why would you do this? 🤔
Well, plenty of research (such as this one) shows that asking students to go through a process of reviewing their own work is beneficial for their learning process and leads to a deeper understanding of the studied topic.
🧐 How it works
When you add a self review activity to your course, your learners are able to review their own submission or themselves (think of assessing their own skill level before and after taking part in a course).
Learners complete the self review activity by answering the question in the feedback rubric.
🏗 How to set it up
Add the self review activity to your course
Go to the settings tab of the activity and write a description for your learners so they know what to expect.
By default the self review activity is not connected to a source (a submission activity). Should learners review their own submission? Make sure to select the submission activity as a source here. Should learners review themselves instead of their submission? Just leave the toggle off.
Set up the feedback rubric questions (Want to learn more about feedback rubrics, click here).
