Assessing Writing, v6 n1 p107-32 1999
Presents a study where 148 students in 15 grade 4-6 classrooms were taught over an 8-week period how to evaluate their work. Notes that treatment group students became more accurate in their self-evaluations than controls. Discusses how, contrary to the beliefs of many students, parents and teachers, students' propensity to inflate grades decreased when teachers shared assessment responsibility. (SC)
