dc.description.abstractThe investigation involved implementing various self-assessment practices and evaluated the impacts on student achievement, self-confidence and mastery of science concepts. The study included 30 eighth grade students with academic abilities ranging from below to above grade level. This research was conducted at Washington Middle School in Missoula, Montana. The treatment was implemented over the course of four physical science units spanning from November through February. Student achievement was assessed by analyzing class participation, unit test scores and Assignment and Effort Tracking Sheets. Student attitudes were evaluated through the pre and post-treatment data from the Student Attitude Inventory and Course-Related Self-Confidence Survey.en
