Abstract
This study tests the hypothesis that implementing, managing and enhancing self-assessment procedures may improve learning. One hundred and fifty seven (157) financial math students in a high school with a predominantly at-risk population were divided randomly into an experimental group (self assessment and reflection) and a control group (traditional practice work). The experimental group performed significantly better than the control group (p = 0.02). The experimental group increased their scores from an average of 5.3 out of 18 correct on the pre-test to an average of 11 out of 18 correct on the post-test. The control group increased their scores from an average of 4.5 out of 18 correct on the pre-test to an average of 8 out of 18 correct on the post-test. We include a review of the literature related to the use of self assessment and a description of the procedures we used and how we developed them.
