Which process is used to identifying the content knowledge and skills that you expect the learners to achieve
Self-assessment probes are indirect methods of assessment that ask students to reflect and comment on their level of knowledge and skill across a range of items. These items can include knowledge and skills that are prerequisites for the course as well as items that will be addressed in the course.
Feedback from the instrument can help you calibrate your course appropriately or help you direct students to supplemental materials that will help them fill in gaps or weaknesses in their existing skill or knowledge base that may hinder their progress. The questions also help students focus on the most important knowledge and skills addressed by the course and access information from prior courses or experiences that apply to the course.
The advantage of a self-assessment instrument is that it is relatively easy to construct and score, and because it can be administered anonymously, it is low-anxiety for the student. The weakness in the method is that students may not be able to accurately assess their abilities. However, accuracy improves when the response options are clear and tied to specific concepts or behaviors
