Research Designs and Methods in Self-Assessment Studies: A Content Analysis
Pastore, Serafina
International Journal of Evaluation and Research in Education, v6 n4 p257-264 Dec 2017
This paper focuses on self-assessment studies in the higher education field. In the assessment for learning perspective, self-assessment is related to reflection, metacognition, and self-regulation: all these aspects are considered as fundamental prerequisites for students' future professional development. Despite the recognition of self-assessment educational benefits and implications, research so far lags behind the rise in the rates of aligning literature review, research design, and methodology. The study attempts to address this gap in the literature. Based on a critical review of institutional changes in the European higher education context, the paper reflects on main issues and problems faced by educational research on self-assessment. It then tries to identify future research pathways on this topic.
