Abstract Title: What are the Effects of Self-Assessment Preparation?
Abstract: This research was conducted by an urban middle school science teacher who sought to investigate the effects of self-assessment on student performance.  A group of students were asked to give themselves a score on each learning target assessed in class and to provide evidence for their decision.  Student self-assessment scores were compared to scores given by the teacher to see if students who accurately assessed their own learning scored higher on final assessments than students who did not.  Assessment scores between groups of students who completed the self-assessment preparation and students who did not were also analyzed.  Preliminary findings will be discussed in this presentation as well as further implications for this teacher's classroom.
