Interesting post on the Structured Observed Learning Outcome (SOLO). "The reason why we are investing quite heavily into SOLO," writes Alice Leung, "is because as teachers, we know that self-regulation and quality feedback are the two of the most effective elements in increasing student achievement." This post outlines mechanisms for describing learning intentions and success criteria and has a sample activity (11 pages, Scribd) and presentation used with students (5 page Scribd). Reflection is good; this is a pretty simple tool but I like the way it approaches the need to be reflective.
