A big part of learning comes from the KMS environment whereby students are given choices and daily opportunities for self-evaluation. Being given the choice of how and when to complete certain tasks, students learn independence and self-regulation. We recognize that students differ in how much choice they can effectively handle so teachers adapt to individual needs.
The “self-evaluation” form that students fill out daily gives rise to ongoing discussions between students and teachers regarding their choices. Much time is spent in the inquiry and discovery process that results from the self-evaluation.
By getting immediate feedback, students know what is expected of them and how they are doing so that they have ample opportunities to make better and better choices.
