Effective Engagement with Self-Reported Grades
The purpose of this self-paced, online course is to help educators build a foundational understanding of how to implement student self-reported grades in the classroom. According to John Hattie’s extensive research into what works in education, implementing “student expectations” can provide an additional three years of growth in learning and achievement in one year. Hattie says “This strategy involves the teacher finding out what are the student’s expectations and pushing the learner to exceed these expectations. Once a student has performed at a level that is beyond their own expectations, he or she gains confidence in his or her learning ability.” Participants in this course will gain ideas for getting started with self-reported grades, access ready-made templates, and collaborate with others on the topic.

Self-Paced Online Course
Effective Engagement with Self-Reported Grades is a self-paced, online program. Participants can begin anytime and go at their own speed throughout the program.
Upon enrollment, you will receive a program invitation email from TCEA’s learning management system (Instructure’s Canvas) that will give you access to the self-paced course. Within the course, you will find modules that must be moved through in sequential order. The modules can be found below. Note: It will be helpful to have a G Suite for Education account in order to access ready-made templates.
|Module 1||Defining Self-Reported Grades||In this module, we will define what Self-Reported Grades is and explore what research says about it.|
|Module 2||Helping Students Set Goals||Goal setting is an important part of being a visible learner. In this module, we will explore ways in which you can help your students set goals for their learning.|
|Module 3||Incorporating Rubrics||Rubrics are a great way to give students the power to assess their own work. In this module, we'll look at the best way to utilize rubrics in the classroom.|
|Module 4||Utilizing Self-Monitoring||Students who track their grades regularly take ownership of their learning. In this module, we’ll investigate different ways students can track their own progress.|
