Assessment Initiated by Student

Students request assessments to demonstrate mastery and set pace of course


Students request assessments when they are ready to take them. This responsibility empowers students with control over the pace of their learning. Allowing students to determine when they are assessment-ready encourages greater ownership and reflection of their learning. It also reduces anxiety as students know they are ready for the assessment when they request it (as opposed to a time-based model, which is controlled by the educator).
