Self-Assessment and Self-Evaluation in New Forms of Training Near the Workplace.
The project Self-Assessment and Self-Evaluation in New Forms of Training near the Workplace--A Step Towards the Learning Organisation was undertaken in Bavaria, Germany, to help companies begin the process of becoming learning organizations by helping workers manage their own learning. The project is based on the following principles and assumptions: (1) the increased autonomy and freedom of decision of today's employees should extend to managing their own learning; (2) the role and methodology of evaluation face considerable changes in the context of the increasing importance of lifelong learning and the integration of working and learning processes; (3) learners are the best judge of their learning progress and how it affects their work; and (4) self-evaluation does not work without certain changes in individuals and in their work environment (increasing trust and open communication between workers and employers, providing workers with the skills to assess their own learning behavior and progress, and revising companies' traditional appraisal systems). The companies cooperating in the project will first take stock of existing instruments for evaluation and self-evaluation. They will then develop standards for new or improved instruments. In accordance with the project's overall objective, involving employees in all new developments from the start will be a main consideration. (Contains 14 references.) (MN)
