Have you wondered how to help students create thoughtful information on their learning progress? In this presentation, Dr. Sargeant, who is currently leading an international qualitative study exploring "informed" self-assessment across the medical education continuum, shares ideas from her principal research interest area: performance assessment and how assessment feedback is provided and used.

By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Review evidence for the effectiveness of self-assessment.
  • Distinguish between self-assessment and informed self-assessment.
  • Describe an evidence-based model for understanding informed self-assessment.
  • Identify the links connecting feedback, the environment and  informed self-assessment.
  • Consider practical implications for supporting learners.
