eReflections - students writing their own reports!

E-Reflections are a chance for students to reflect on their progress over a period of time. They can describe their progress, and give themselves a score on different areas. They can do this as often as required, so that progress can be measured over a term or a year.

E-Reflections are split up into Reflection Focuses, i.e. different learning areas or subjects. There can be zero or more questions/statements for the students to evaluate themselves against.
