Self Assessment Pegs Chart

The Self Assessment Pegs Chart helps the pupils measure what they know or can do for a skill against RAG (red, amber, green) or smiley faces traffic lights.  Every child has a peg with their name and they are able to place the peg on the traffic light/ smiley face they feel comfortable with at the start and end of a task.  They can also record the traffic light colour and smiley face as a self assessment upon completion of their work. This Self Assessment Pegs Chart is a very visual way to see the progress of the whole class during the lesson and the teacher has an opportunity to consider the children’s understanding in order to direct the next steps during the lesson.
