The Impact of a Flexible Assessment System on Students' Motivation, Performance and Attitude

The Impact of a Flexible Assessment System on Students' Motivation, Performance and Attitude

“We find that allowing students to finalize their allocations late in the term significantly and positively impacts motivation, grades and attitudes. The results suggest that self-regulated learning skills may be enhanced if students have an opportunity to make more informed choices. This enables them to develop a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses by reconsidering their initial beliefs, their actual results and the reasons for the differences.” (p.148)
