When learners track their own progress, assessment for learning (formative assessment) quickly becomes assessment as learning. Learners figure out where they are in their learning and how they learn best, which is powerful. Ideally, learners track their proficiency in specific skills, standards, or competencies – this can be done on paper or digitally.
Be sure to create time and space for learners to both track and reflect on their learning.
