Yet more questions to promote reflection
Pages 3

The following questions could be considered a starting point for reflection prompts to be included as leading questions for student self-assessment or student-tutor dialogues. Imagine that each time students handed in an assignment for marking (essay, report, problems-sheet solutions), or undertook any other assessed task (dissertation, fieldwork report, presentation), they were asked to reflect upon what they had just done, and show evidence of their reflection by answering some wellchosen questions about how they felt at that time about what they’d done. These questions could be conveniently spaced out on a pro forma of no more than two sides of A4, or the equivalent on a Web-based questionnaire.
