AI-based projects evaluation criteria
(Self-) evaluation of learning and work tasks
Automation and artificial intelligence are already changing the world of work today and will continue to do so in the future. Tasks within professions are changing because certain activities can be performed by machines. The mainly technically induced changes in the world of work and professions make it necessary to prepare young people for this new world of work now. This requires not only changed professional skills (via new technologies such as AI) but also increasingly social competence, personnel and methodological skills: creative thinking, working on one’s own responsibility, teamwork, self-directed learning, etc.
How can vocational action competence be promoted in vocational school and in-company training in the age of AI?
So-called learning and work tasks (LWT) can be a way of making teaching action-oriented, combining theory and practice and thus promoting the competence development of learners. LWT are characterised by project-based, process- and task-oriented learning, which make use of problematic situations of the professional reality. In this way learning and working are to be linked.
The ideal typical realisation of LWT includes the following four steps:
- Development of LWT
- Implementation of LWT
- Evaluation of LWT
- Self-evaluation LWT
In this part of the toolkit we will go into more detail about the last step (d): self-evaluation.
What are the benefits of the self-evaluation tool? With the help of the self-evaluation tool, teachers and trainers can test whether tasks are suitable in the form in which they were carried out, whether there is room for improvement and whether the task was effective for the learning process. This tool is intended to provide guidance and can be adapted to different contexts.
How to use the self-evaluation tool? The teacher himself/herself can answer the questions. However, trainers and pupils can also be involved. In this case, it must be ensured that there is trust among those involved so that assessments can be freely expressed.
