A workshop process organized to assess an organization's needs, capacities, a capacity development initiative, or the organization's performance, and involving the organization's management and staff and perhaps external stakeholders.
A process in which a student engages in a systematic review of their progress and achievement, usually for the purpose of improvement. It may involve comparison with an exemplar, success criteria, or other criteria. It may also involve critiquing one's own work or a description of the achievement obtained.
Self-assessment is a process that allows candidates being assessed to collect and provide evidence on their own performances against the competency standards. Self-assessment is often used as a preassessment tool to help the candidate and assessor to determine what evidence is available and where the gaps may be.
When a student assesses his or her own performance against the assessment criteria. This is in itself a very valuable teaching/learning activity because self-assessment is a requirement of professional decision-making, and should be learned at university. Whether self assessment should be used in summative assessment is a different issue, depending on the ILOs of the course.
Pupils are involved in self-assessment when they look at their own work in a reflective way and identify aspects that are good and others that need to be improved. Black and Wiliam highlighted this as an important part of learning. One way of doing this is by traffic lighting, where pupils are asked to assign red, amber and green colours to their work to indicate their level of confidence. Like peer assessment, self-assessment benefits if teachers explain and demonstrate it and ensure pupils have a clear understanding of learning objectives and criteria of success.
(added July 2002) Self assessment is the tax system which operates in the UK for the administration and collection of income tax, capital gains tax and corporation tax (a similar system also operates for inheritance tax purposes). Taxpayers are generally required to complete an annual tax return and submit it to the Inland Revenue before a statutory filing deadline. There is also a general requirement for the taxpayer to calculate (i.e. 'self-assess') his or her own tax liability (although in certain circumstances the Inland Revenue will calculate the tax liabilities of individuals, personal representatives or trustees, if requested). The tax liability so calculated must be paid by fixed payment dates in order to avoid interest charges accruing, and payments on account may also be required for the next tax year or accruing period.
A self assessment form is a government plan for the filing of tax returns. We are in charge of our own returns. If you only have earnings that resulted from your job or savings, then more than likely you will not have to fill one out.
Self-assessment is finalization of assessment by the department based on the returns filed by the dealer without calling for and examining the books of accounts. Since under VAT the propensity to evade tax is likely to be lower, the self-assessment turnover limit is expected to be higher.
Self-assessment tools allow students to take practice or review tests online. These assessments generally do not count toward a grade. When Self-assessment tools are combined with pedagogical skill in preparing the content of the test items and response feedback there can be large positive effects on student motivation.
A process in which learners or organisations assess their own performance against particular standards or criteria; (in competency-based training) a process in which learners assess their own performance against competency standards; (in quality endorsement a process in which an organisation assesses the extent to which it satisfies the criteria for quality endorsement, identifying opportunities for improvement.
Self-assessment in an organisational setting, according to the EFQM definition, refers to a comprehensive, systematic and regular review of an organisation's activities and results referenced against the EFQM Excellence Model. The Self-Assessment process allows the organisation to discern clearly its strengths and areas in which improvements can be made and culminates in planned improvement actions which are then monitored for progress.
The process of receiving direct feedback on what training people need. This approach is especially useful in the early stages on a new job, when people are not expected to have full knowledge and skills as yet.
