Effects of the application of a formative and shared assessment system on the self-perception of competences acquired in pre-service teacher education
- The objective of this study was to analyze students' valuation of the system of formative and shared assessment (F & SA) utilized in the course "Fundamentals and didactics of body education in childhood education," as well as their self-perception of the professional skills acquired during the course. It was carried out in a Faculty of Teacher Education at a Spanish university using a pre- and post-test design with a sample of 93 students, which was composed of two groups and courses: (a) Teaching Degree in Childhood Education (TCHE) and (b) Joint Curriculum for Childhood Education and Primary Education (JCCH & PE). The results show a high appraisal of the "advantages" of the F & SA system, while the majority of the "disadvantages" received lower results. Regarding self-perception of the acquisition of competences, most students indicated higher scores on the post-test, so we conclude that the F&SA system helped improve their competences. The data collected confirm the advantages of using F & SA systems in pre-service teacher education and their possible contribution to the development of professional skills. It is necessary to carry out more research on the latter.
