Self-assessment for autonomous language learners
Gardner, David

Date: 2000
Abstract: This paper discusses why self-assessment is an important tool in the toolkit of autonomous language learners. It can be used both as a testing device leading to accreditation and as a device for personal self-monitoring. It provides the learner with immediate feedback to determine language proficiency and to reflect on learning strategies. There are great benefits to be derived from self-assessment but it is a technique that needs to be introduced carefully and accompanied by considerable awareness raising and support. This paper discusses how to maximise the benefits while minimising the pitfalls. It also describes the teacher's role in the process and the different levels of learner involvement from self-administering a pre-packaged test through to using self-produced tests.
